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)

Hojicha …Pot (800ml), Cup(200ml)

Even if you don’t have 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.
