Where to buy shiboridashi

by Jadee » Feb 11th, '13, 12:08

I'm looking for a shiboridashi for my gyokuro and I need ideas where to buy a good one. I will order it online, so any recomendations on online shop would be great. I was looking for 180 ml, but I think it will be too big for me, so I would prefer about 100 ml. I like my ware simple and clean, so I'm looking for minimal and straight lines.

And ideas or recomendations would be great. Thanks in advance :-)

Also Petr Novak who is one of our TeawareArtisans will either have them or make them to order! http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=12296

Also under TeawareArtisans, I believe Andre and Shawn also make them ...

For Gyokuro, I do use Shibs quite a bit but also use Hobin (also spelled Houhin and a number of other ways) as well.

Thank you for the link, will checked it out.

I've been also looking for houhin, but they say it is better shiboridashi for gyokuro. Don't know, haven't try any of them. What do you say if you tested both, which do you prefer?

100ml is good for one person, not much room for anything more if your going full strength with about 7.5 grams of leaf for 60ml of water. I prefer houhin because I like the filter. As far as the style your looking for goes I got nothing I prefer the opposite, wabi lines and a lot of texture.

Usually I drink tea by myself so for one person would be totaly ok, I am very fond of my gaiwans, all around 100 ml and are perfect size. I have kyusu about 200 ml and I can say it is too big, I always do my tea with half the water so I guess shiboridashi or houhin that big would be too big for my use. Perhaps 150 ml maximum.

I'm still not totaly sure if I will get shiboridashi or houhin. I guess filter is a plus. Maybe if you have any ideas or suggestions on houhin would be grat.

And thanks all to participate and sharing your thoughts :-)

Either! Depends on mood and perhaps the actual Gyokuro selection. I like to use both.
