Tea pot and cups for Japanese Tea. What do you need?

dsc_1601One of the pleasures of enjoying Japanese green tea is collecting beautiful traditional Japanese tea pots and cups. Each tea has a preferable tea sets for practical reasons. Here are the best pot and cup size for each tea.

Gyokuro…Pot (90ml ), Tiny Cup ( 40ml)

 Sencha…Pot (250ml), Cup(100ml)

Even if you don’t have a Japanese traditional tea pots and cups, don’t worry! You can brew Japanese green tea in any of your tea pots and enjoy in any of your cups. I like to enjoy Gyokuro in my espresso cup and Hojicha in my mug.
