Japan is famous worldwide for its tea culture. Japanese tea sets are the perfect reflection of that refined art form that is the Japanese tea ceremony. In Japan, cast iron teapots, called tetsubin, distribute heat evenly inside the pot, allowing the flavour of the tea to fully and evenly emerge. Kyusu teapots, mainly used for brewing green tea, come with an internal strainer to aid in the steeping of more delicate teas. The matcha bowl, or Chawan, is an integral part of the Chanyou tea ceremony in Japan. Japanese tea sets and pots add to the beauty of the tea culture and create a visual presence when drinking Japanese tea.
