This teapot is called a shiboridashi in Japanese and gaiwan, or lidded bowl, in Chinese. This teapot is made from stoneware clay, by Talya Giladi, designed and created to illuminate the complex flavors of any tea brewed inside.
Tea is an important part of the Asian culture. It's considered a must at a gathering. It is a sign of being respectful when you ask someone if they want a drink.
