Mini Kyusu, Takasuke
This simple kyusu for one is our preferred everyday teapot. It is made in Tokoname, the city of Japan most famous for unglazed clay and ceramics. It has a built-in tea ceramic strainer.
Tokoname teapots become glossy as you use them; because they are unfinished, the porous clay absorbs flavors from the tea it brews. We recommend preparing only green tea in them.
Brews 120ml / 4oz
Before first use, rinse it in hot water then let it dry completely. Avoid placing in a place with high temperatures, such as a microwave, oven, or stove. Hand wash only with warm water—do not use soap.
After use, always let it dry completely. If stored while still wet, it might develop a damp smell or mold.
For additional instructions on how to use, please see our brew guide.
