Description

Kotori translates to small bird, the perfect name for this open top kyusu teapot made of black Tokoname clay. Handcrafted by master potters, this teapot is specifically for enjoying high-grade Japanese green tea. The lid-free design allows the hot water to cool down faster to minimize any bitterness from your green tea leaves. In addition, this kyusu teapot features a convenient built-in strainer for easy cleaning. The Kotori kyusu teapot is ideal for brewing any tea that is best enjoyed with adjusted water temperatures, especially Sencha and Gyokuro green tea. 

Authentic Tokoname clay teapots are hard and dense but especially lightweight and thin-walled. Often seen in black or red, Tokoname teapots are unglazed teaware, which allows the clay to interact with the tea and bring out a unique flavor.

Care Instructions:

  • To clean, simply rinse with warm water before use
  • Avoid brewing strongly perfumed or flavored teas such as Jasmine, Chai, Earl Grey, Mint, Rose, etc, which may leave residual flavor in your Tokoname teapot
  • Prevent scratches from scrubbing by wiping with a soft, clean cloth to remove any stains
  • Do not wash in dishwater
