Tea set for the new year
Limited Item / ASAHIGAMA Pottery collection
For special Matcha time
"Uji" is a special area for Japanese green tea.
Both the farmers who produce tea and the pottely who create tea ware are strongly aware that they are in "Uji".
In April , we planned a "tea workshop to know Uji" with Kiyoharu Tsuji from Tsujiki and Osamu Uemura from Uemura Chaen, who are close friends
to Asahiyaki Shop and Gallery, Toshiyuki Matsubayashi.
Unfortunately, the workshop was canceled due to the influence of covid-19.
However, we are always looking for what kind of tea is produced in the area "Uji" and want to continue to send it out.
This project is the first step.
New Year with covid-19. Think about what kind of time you want to spend with your precious family in the New Year when you can't go far, having tea time should be importnat.
We have discussed and prepared a tea set to spend that special time.
It is a tea set that we wanted tea lovers to enjoy at the table rather than in the tea room for tea ceremony with your important partner.
I would be happy if you could order this special set with the tray selected by Asahiyaki.
