Sourcing notes
Arita is a town in the Saga Prefecture of Japan, internationally renowned for its pottery. It was here 400 years ago where the craft was born. The story goes that a Japanese emperor invaded Korea, bringing back several skilled Korean craftsmen back to Japan. One of these craftsmen discovered that a local mineral was particularly suitable for making porcelain. 

Our teapot is a prime example of Arita-ware, adapted to the modern lifestyle. The inner stainless steel strainer allows sufficient space for tea leaves of all sizes, while being removable for the ease of cleaning.
