Shiboridashi is a Japanese tea-brewing vessel, similar to a gaiwan. It has a lip-spout at the top and a lid that serves as a filter, keeping leaves inside and ensuring a smooth tea flow. A Shiboridashi teapot is adapted for high-end shaded Japanese teas, such as Gyokuro. It's also often used for brewing Shincha and premium Senchas. Shiboridashi literally translates as "to squeeze out," and thus extracts all the umami any tea may possess.
