A traditional minoware kyusu teapot, featuring thick walls with a glazed inside and a built-in side strainer.

At a Glance

Inspired by its deep blue hues, this minoware kyusu teapot is named after the night sky. The colors especially glimmer on the glossy and smooth glass-like finish on this ceramic teapot. This teapot is a piece of traditional mino ware pottery, which has been produced in Japan for over 1,300 years. 

The ceramic material maintains water temperature very well and ensures minimal temperature loss. As a result, the tea stays warm for a longer time. Additionally, the Yozora teapot features thick walls with a glazed inside and a built-in side strainer for easy cleaning. As such, this kyusu teapot accommodates brewing different types of teas without absorbing any particular smell or flavor.

    Care Instructions
    • To clean, simply rinse with warm water before use
    • Prevent scratches from scrubbing by wiping with a soft, clean cloth to remove any stains

    HOW TO PREPARE GREEN TEA USING KYUSU

    | Boil water and cool it to the right temperature in a yuzamashi or water cooling pitcher.

    2 | Measure five (5) grams (1 teaspoon) for a kyusu with 200ml to 250ml of water. Then add to a dry and clean kyusu teapot.

    3 | Slowly pour the cooled water into the kyusu, filling it about 90% full, leaving room at the top for cleaner decantation.

    4 | Add the lid for the recommended infusion time, generally about one to two minutes for Japanese green tea

    5 | Hold the kyusu, secure the lid with your thumb, and pour tea into cups, alternating between them 6-7 times to ensure each cup gets an equal amount. Pour out all the tea from the kyusu.
