Tea for Two is a delightful product brought to you from renowned Zakka artist Shinzi Katoh.
What is Zakka exactly? Well it refers to everything and anything that improves your home, life and appearance. This enchanting tea set most certainly fits the bill! Instead of an ordinary teapot lid, a pretty black kitty pokes her head out to let you know it’s time for a cuppa and a slice of something sweet!
The set is comprised of a black teapot, two black moulded stackable cups, rimmed with white polka dots and a mesh tea strainer which fits neatly into the mouth of the teapot. The handles of the pot and cups are shaped like curly cat tails. The teapot is 7 inches tall and 6.5 inches diameter including the spout and handle, and holds 16 ounces. This is a super fun and adorable tea set and addition to any kitchen or living room and is a great gift for people of all ages.
The Shinzi Katoh tea sets are Japanese designed and made from high-quality ceramic with a unique look and style that makes them great gifts for special occasions or as a perfect accompaniment to any fun kitchen or living room. These ceramic tea sets are both microwave and dishwasher safe.
