An authentic tokoname clay teapot, crafted by master potters, with a lid-free design and built-in strainer.

At a Glance

This kyusu teapot is handmade of black Tokoname clay. Crafted 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

    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.
