Bring home the timeless Asian tradition of tea preparation and service with this classic five-piece porcelain tea set, featuring a striking solid black glaze and delicate white stripe accents.

Enjoyed by millions throughout Japan, tea
was first introduced to the country in the 8th century by China via a traveling Buddhist monk. In the years that followed, Japan cultivated its own special methods of growing, harvesting and enjoying this timeless beverage. One of the most time-honored customs is to prepare and serve tea in handcrafted ceramic wares.
With its basic yet elegant 5-piece black porcelain tea set, you can create your own style of tea service; from fixing special pots of loose leaf teas for holidays, dinner parties or other special occasions, to brewing a variety of bagged teas for simple afternoon get-togethers.
Each piece in this set features an elegant black glaze with a unique sandy-textured finish. Thin irregular carved lines filled with white paint appear vertically across the pot and cup exteriors, giving this selection a charming and traditional appeal.
In addition to its lovely appearance, this five-piece set is also dishwasher and microwave safe-to help preserve its design and function, the bamboo handle should be removed prior to using the pot in either appliance. A mesh sieve is also included with each pot-great for use with loose leaf teas.
Whether you're shopping for your favorite tea enthusiast or looking for a memorable gift for a special occasion like a holiday, birthday or wedding, this five-piece black porcelain tea set with white stripes is sure to make a lasting impression. This selection also pairs perfectly with our similar-colored porcelain sake set
