This very well made Tokoname-yaki kyusu (teapot) features engraved floral decorations.

Compared to a steel mesh filter, its ceramic debeso (half-spherical) filter introduces no metallic flavours to the tea.

Tokoname-yaki (常滑焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Tokoname in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The site of one of Japan’s Six Ancient Kilns, pottery has been made in Tokoname since the 12th century.

Today, Tokoname ware is known for its iconic brick-red clay called shudei. Famously used in teaware and bonsai pots, this clay’s vibrant colour comes from its rich iron content. Tea steeped in unglazed Tokoname teapots is said to have a mellower taste.

Dimensions:

16cm (6.3in) - width (including handle)
7.1cm (2.8in) - height
230ml - capacity
