Today, Yuuki-Cha has rolled out some new practical, stand-up resealable pouch packaging for three of our matcha green teas and are now delivering even more value on them! Here’s the run down:

Yuuki Midori 40 gram green tin @ $25 has been replaced by a 50 gram resealable pouch @ $20! You save $5 and get 10 grams extra! WOW!

Yuuki Konjo 40 gram blue tin @ $14 has been replaced by a 50 gram resealable pouch @ $12! You save $2 and get 10 grams extra! WOW!

Yame Matcha 40 gram black tin @ $20 has been replaced by a 50 gram resealable pouch @ $16! You save $4 and get 10 grams extra! WOW!

In addition, our 100 gram packets have been discontinued because they are matched in price by the new 50g pouches, so if you were a customer of them, we kindly ask you to now enjoy the improved 50 gram resealable stand-up pouches!

We hope our customers will enjoy these excellent new pouches and added value!

Tokoname Teapot New Arrivals

Some new additions to our catalog of Tokoname Teapots have arrived and a few others will arrive pretty soon. Most of these were selected for their obvious impressive quality, techniques and appearance, yet also for their functionality and features. Below are three interesting new features:

First up, is what is known as a “Chakkiri Kyusu”. It has a uniquely shaped spout allowing for a smoother pour. Found on these two teapots Kuro Midori Chakkiri Tokoname Teapot & Kuro Ruretto Chakkiri Tokoname Teapot. If you have any type of trouble or difficulty pouring tea or have a teapot that clogs and/or dribbles, this type of Tokoname Teapot will aid you extremely well:

Next up, a feature of an extra wide sasame mesh! Found on this very kyusu Biri Shusen Tokoname Teapot. Helps with the pour and incredibly difficult to clog:

And finally, from this batch of teapots, we’d like to introduce a teapot with a slice cut out of the rim where the lid rests. Found on this teapot Kuro Midori Chakkiri Tokoname Teapot. Especially useful for removing spent leaf from the teapot keeping it in pristine condition:
