A traditional way of brewing loose leaf tea in Japan, the shiboridashi is the perfect vessel for elevating your personal tea ceremony. Crafted in exquisite porcelain, the set includes two tea cups for sharing with a friend.
To brew tea with the shiboridashi, add your loose leaf tea to the base and slowly pour hot water over the leaves. Cover and let steep as recommended. Once the tea has steeped, carefully pour the tea into the cups, using the lid to hold back the leaves. Rebrew by simply adding more hot water to the leaves.
