Authentic hand-crafted gaiwan suitable for Japanese tea. This gaiwan can be used to brew a variety of larger leaved teas such as oolong, red tea or kamairicha.

The potter uses the Akahata white glaze on a reddish soil to bring out this beautiful glossy white surface. With use over time the glaze will start to show a craquelure which will add to the flavor of the teapot and its expression.
