This Kutani-yaki porcelain Japanese tea set includes one kyusu (teapot) and two senchawan (small teacups), each featuring a stunning red glaze with intricate golded designs and blue accents. This combination of red and gold is called the 'eiraku' style.
The teapot has a ceramic debeso (half-spherical) filter, which compared to a steel mesh filter, introduces no metallic flavours to the tea. Made by Kutani Eiraku (九谷永楽)
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
