Japanese Tea Set - Chrysanthemum Kanji Kutani-yaki Kyusu Teapot with 5 Yunomi Teacups
This Japanese tea set includes one kyusu (teapot) and five yunomi (teacups) each featuring a yellow glaze with red trim, and decorated with hand-painted chrysanthemum flowers and kanji.
The teapot has a simple ceramic do-ake filter, which compared to a steel mesh filter, introduces no metallic flavours to the tea.
Kutani-yaki (九谷焼) is a style of Japanese porcelain traditionally from Kutani, now a part of Kaga, Ishikawa, in the former Kaga Province, Japan. Porcelain wares made here became popular in the 17th century and after production in Kutani was revived in the 19th century, it is known for its intricate designs, called aka-e kinran-de (赤絵 金襴手) Kutani
