Justin L. –
I bought this as a gift for two friends, who really loved it, except that the Kyusu arrived broken (to California, USA, via FedEx). Koto very quickly sent a replacement via DHL, with no hassle. They were friendly and fast the entire time.
Both times I’ve purchased from them, the package has come just as fast as I would expect something from the US – within a few days. It’s really remarkable speed, but hand made / authentic product.
The modern design of this teapot and tea cups fits surprisingly well into western households, and the cone shape of the teapot makes it easy to pour out loose tea leaves during cleaning. I do like the minimalistic design, and the large volume is very handy for preparing large amount of tea!
(The colour of the teapot and teacups is more of a grey colour as opposed to white.)
