This Japanese tea set includes a Japanese tea pot and 4 Japanese tea cups. An ideal set to get everything ready to serve and enjoy Japanese tea. This Japanese tea set is a piece of Shigaraki Ware.

Shigaraki ware (信楽焼) is pottery and stoneware made in Shigaraki area, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. The kiln is one of the ‘Six Old Kilns’ in Japan. Although figures representing the Tanuki (Japanese racoon dog ornament) are a popular product included as Shigaraki ware, the kiln and local pottery tradition has a long history.

The local sandy clay from the bed of Lake Biwa (Japan’s largest lake) has a warm orange color, and makes very durable pottery. This clay characterizes Shigaraki ware. The ceramics have irregular contours and an archaic flavor, with mineral glaze surface.
