Tokoname Kyusu Teapot – Light Brown


Tokoname Kyusu are teapots that represent Japan and have a long history and tradition dating back to the Edo period. Tokoname teapots are made from soil that contains a lot of iron oxide, when used the teapot reacts with tannins in the tea, removing bitterness and making it mellow and delicious. The teapot becomes more lustrous the more it is used, and the more it is used, the more it changes in flavour. Enjoy a delicious cup of tea in a Tokoname teapot made from Aichi Tokoname ware.

The way to prepare loose leaf tea in a Kyusu is to add enough tea leaves to cover the bottom of the teapot, then add hot water that has been cooled to the appropriate temperature. Finally pour out the tea once the tightly twisted tea leaves have unraveled. When you take your first sip, a pleasant sweetness and fragrance will delight you.

This Kyusu was made in Tokoname, Aichi prefecture. It has a wire mesh strainer perfect for loose leaf tea.
