Porcelain Kyusu, Yoshimura Toen
This porcelain teapot comes from the Yoshimura Toen kiln from Nagasaki. Its style, known as hasamiyaki, is traditionally found in Hasami City and comes from porcelain-making traditions in Korea. Hasamiyaki is fired at extremely high temperatures, transforming the glaze to glass, so there is no absorption of flavor from the tea—this is a quiet, understated kyusu for brewing roasted teas, such as hōjicha. Its pale blue-white hue and round bottom makes for easy clean-up.
