Speaking of the popular travel sets - Here is a little, and by little I mean teeny-tiny, travel set I picked up at Hankook Teas in LA. This was during a group outing of TeaChat members. Fun day!

Like the blue set too. They do fit compactly together, but it is a bit frustrating that the cup holds just a little less than the gaiwan part (what is it called again, the not-quite gaiwan?). I wish the cup was a bit less teeny so I wouldn't always be trying to sip very carefully to avoid spilling that first little bit.

Those set are called "shiboridashi" by Japanese. I have tried to get at the Korean name of it but without success for now. But I will talk with few Korean artists how do them in few weeks so I am going to find out that name. But most probably it came from Japan during Japanese occupation in beginning of the last century.

And about the capacity: You don’t have to fill shiboridashi to the top and your problem is not problem any more :)

and for now-Would you like cup of MalCha?:

Petr, I noticed one of your pots was similar in design to this one. With a scallop edge. Very sweet!

Thank you Victoria- now I can see two more pictures of your new pot than before and I should make corection. This kind of pot coincide more with Japanes term"hóhin" or "houhin" . Shiboridashi are without sieve with only "cuts in bowl" as is visible on my post few posts back.

Thanks for clarifying this Petr! This has been discussed in the past, it is good to get your perspective.

Debunix. I use the cup as a water cooler for these so called "travel sets" from Korea/Hankook. That way I have the right amount for the cup. Yeah, the cups are smaller than the pot. :mrgreen:

An alternative would be to use a small pitcher or fair cup ...

I do end up using a fair cup often with my houhin or shiboridashi set, but if I were better coordinated, or the set sizes were more perfectly matched, wouldn't need it so often. Love the simplicity and feel of using this set, regardless.

Another contemporary set from Hankook Teas.
It is a very hard to capture the delicate pale celedon green.
I have several matching pieces in this "Woonsan" collection:

I love the variety of 'barely there' colors on very simple designs like that.

What are the Korean names for these kind of sets, or teaware in general? I mean, if I were looking around for tea sets in Korea, what would I need to ask for? I speak Korean fairly well, but I've been having trouble trying to find terms for looseleaf teas and teaware in Korean (none of my Korean friends drink tea and my dictionary hasn't been of much help either).

I know there are shops and artisans in Insadong, but I'm not sure if that is truly the best place to go. If I can find an artisan who is closer to where I'll be living, I would definitely prefer it (I've lived in Gyeongsangbukdo before and may be moving to Busan this summer).

Maybe you could print some pictures to take along. That may help.
I think we have a member or two who speak Korean, hopefully
they will be of more help.

The shapes, the celadon, the bamboo pattern, that one has it all. Beautiful.
