The Ujitawara-Seichajyo Co. tea shop, founded in 1926, has teamed with popular Kyoto-based brand Sou Sou to produce tea sets that feature pop and modern Japanese designs.
The collaboration is intended to promote the charms of Japanese tea served from a teapot to young people.
A caddy containing "Koimaro-cha" tea leaves and the lid of a teapot are each available in six varieties, including the flower-themed "Hana-gasane," daisy-patterned "Kiku-zukushi" and "Matsu-wa-Matsu-rashiku," which features pine motifs.
Address: Gonokuchi, Ujitawara, Kyoto Prefecture.
