It took 10days only, from the time I ordered the tea pot and the reception to it in London. It was packed and wrapped with exquisite thoughtfulness. Since yesterday, I made full use of it and it fills perfectly the size of my favourite « English » tea cup. Beautiful and practical. Thank you Yuko
This teapot is made perfect no question about it. The form is beautiful ; I like especially the handle, that I decided to make the purchase ! The glaze is smooth, and shiny but unfortunately is not my favorite ( personally I like the spray glaze the least and I did not closely “see/think” about how the glaze was applied). I also wish the color is whiter. Next time I will ask more details or I suggest seller adding photos or words in the description on the glaze . I still like the teapot though. The packaging and delivery are pretty good.
Théière parfaite pour que le thé nage à sa guise ! Service rapide et de qualité. Merci !
The perfect teapot for tea to swim as it pleases! Fast and quality service. Thank you

Very fast response
Incredibly fast shipping and handmade!
This is my second purchase and tea pot from Nankei Pottery. I really love all their minimalistic yet traditional pieces. But I think this one is by far my FAVORITE tea ware to use!
This Shiboridashi has a beautiful smooth glaze finish on the outside and unglazed on the inside. Made from a special purple clay called shidei 紫泥 that is high in iron content, which is said to mellow the flavour of green teas in particular.
As Yuko explained to me, that this tea pot works the same way as an iron Tetsubin kettle; Where the iron changes the water molecules which “softens” the water, therefore enhances the tea.

Isn’t it nice to procure another finely crafted piece of Japanese tea ware! This Kyushu just begs to be put to use – no reservations there. Excellent balance, pours effortlessly and cleaning is so easy. The cylindrical handle adds to its body strength. Impressive is the word I’m looking for. Lance Scrivner
This teapot is a work of art. The quality of the clay and craftmanship is exquisite. It is a pleasure to hold and to use. I dont know how i will resist buying more.
