This Kutani-yaki tea set includes one kyusu (teapot) and four yunomi (teacups), each featuring red and green floral decorations. The teapot comes with a 'debeso' ceramic filter to nicely pour tea, without introducing any 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.
