Item No. 40047.1
This teapot is handmade by the ceramic artist Gyokko in Tokoname, Aichi prefecture A city renowned for its tradition in pottery and ceramics. The fine pattern is applied on the hand-operated potters wheel. It is then fired in the reduction furnace and treated with smoke to achieve the deep black colour. The integrated sieve is made from clay.
Japanese Kyusu side handle teapots are ideal for making green tea. The tea leaves can unfold freely in the pot and are retained inside by an integrated sieve in front of the spout during infusion. The filling quantity of the pot should be chosen so that the tea can be completely distributed on the cup(s) provided and no water remains in the pot. The leaves remain in the pot and are then simply briefly brewed again with water for further infusions.
The filling capacities of the teaware are always measured up to the edge - the actual quantity in daily use is slightly smaller. This teapot is for 1-5 persons.
Please note that the shape, colour and size of the tea ceramics can vary slightly! This is especially true for teapots, which are all at least partially handmade.
To clean the pot, "tap" the tea set and rinse it well with clear water, also through the spout. For more resilient residues, please follow our cleaning instructions.
