Nankei Pottery

Ireko Chaki - Teapot & Cup Set

$ 110

Enjoy a teapot and teacup set that are nested within each other allowing you to brew premium tea anywhere you would like.

This tea pot is widely used to brew premium tea that requires a lower brewing temperature, but also as the tea cups are nested within the tea pot, you can easily carry the set around to different settings. The teapot isn’t glazed on the inside and the fine unevenness allows for the teapot to moderate the astringency of the tea to make it more mellow and delicious. The cups are coated with a milky white glaze so you can enjoy the color of the tea. 


Originally established in 1913, Nankei started out as a pottery shop extracting and excavating soil, elutriating it, and then selling it. Since then, for about 50 years they have recreated the shop to begin creating their own lifestyle products utilizing Banko-ware hoping that the use of natural products will enrich our daily lives.
