We often focus our efforts on the teas we are purchasing and drinking. Debating the terroir, taste, and flavour. But what about your teaware? Today's podcast sees the Kawartha Potters Guild examine several ceramic teawares: A Shigaraki Shiboridashi, a Yixing Teapot, and a Minoyaki Tenmoku Chawan. We're crossing cultures and learning arts. It's the World Tea Podcast.

Who’s That Cultivar?

00:0000:00

So join me today as we team up with Ricardo from Myjapanesegreentea.com to hear all about the magic within the tea leaves.
