Japanese Kyusu - 玉光 Gyokko Nerikomi Striped Tokoname-yaki Debeso Teapot - 190ml
This hira-gata Tokoname-yaki kyusu (teapot) features a stripe of marbled nerikomi clay, which is produced by layering and kneading together different coloured clays. The pot's flat shape is great for even extraction while its ceramic debeso filter will impart no metallic tastes to the tea. Made by Gyokko (玉光).
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.
