How would you like to begin every morning of December with a new Japanese tea prepared with authentic teaware? With this bundle, you not only get to take part in the green tea advent calendar, but you also get the clay kyusu teapot, which is the best tool for prepare loose leaf tea. We’re going to walk you through everything that’s included in the green tea advent calendar with Kyusu. 

What is the green tea advent calendar 

The green tea advent calendar is an idea we came up with a couple of years ago and to this date it is among our most popular products, as it quickly sells out every year. This is a great way to get into the mood for the holidays, as you try out a new type of tea each morning and read a short poem to teach you a little bit about it.

In this advent calendar, you will get samples of some of the best teas we’ve found during our travels around Japan. We tuck each of these sample packs into decorative red envelopes along with a short poem and some brewing instructions. The red envelopes are a fun way to keep the mystery going until it's time to drink the tea!

We also thought it would be nice to include some authentic teaware, so we decided to put this bundle together so you can get a great deal on everything you need!

What kind of teaware is included in the green tea advent calendar

In this bundle, you will get one of the most famous utensils used to prepare Japanese green tea. The Kyusu teapot, is well known for this side handled design, which serves some important functions when it comes to brewing the tea.

Kyusu Teapot

This is the perfect tool for preparing loose leaf Japanese green tea. The clay teapot is made with a wider base that allows the tea leaves more space to expand and fully release their flavor into the water. It also has a built in strainer and side handle that make pouring easier.

The side handle is hollow, so it stays cool to the touch even when there is hot water inside. The side handle also makes pouring much easier, as all it takes is a simple turn of the wrist to pour out your tea. Once you pour out the tea, the built in metal strainer will automatically filter the leaves out so they don’t end up in your cup. Once the leaves and water are separated, the tea stops brewing and you can enjoy it!

The clay itself can also benefit the flavor of the tea. Clay teapots have been known to reduce some of the bitterness of a tea and even accentuate some of its tasting notes. The clay used to make this teapot is from Tokoname, the most famous region for pottery in Japan. 


What’s in the green tea advent calendar

In this advent calendar, you will find 28 different kinds of matcha, gyokuro, sencha, hojicha, kukicha, bancha, kamairicha, genmaicha and more! Let’s learn a bit about each type:

Matcha

This is a powdered tea made from younger leaves of the tea plant. This powder is mixed directly into water to create a stronger tea that is loaded with health benefits.

Gyokuro

This is the most sought after leaf tea in Japan, made from leaves that have been shaded for 3 weeks or more before the harvest. This tea has a powerful sweet and savory flavor and a smooth finish.

Sencha

Sencha is the most common tea type in Japan, and it’s made from leaves that have been steamed, rolled and dried. Depending on how and where the leaves are grown and how they are processed, sencha can take on a bunch of different forms.

Hojicha

Hojicha is a special type of roasted green tea. Once the tea leaves have been dried, they are roasted in either a pan or a roasting machine to produce warmer flavors of coffee, caramel and chocolate.

Kukicha

This is a green tea made from both the stems and leaves of the tea plant. The addition of the stems creates a milder flavor and it reduces the caffeine content of the tea.

Bancha

This tea is made from older tea leaves picked lower down on the tea plant. Bancha is lower in caffeine and higher in minerals and it has become the second most popular tea in Japan after sencha.

Kamairicha

Kamairicha is a partially roasted tea made in the Chinese pan roasting style. The flavor falls somewhere in between a sencha and a hojicha, with these toasted nut notes and a hint of caramel.

Genmaicha

This famous green tea is made by mixing tea leaves with roasted rice. This is low in caffeine and it has a pleasant cereal flavor that is nice at any time of day!
