This classic Banko-yaki kyusu (teapot) features engraved kanji. Compared to a steel mesh filter, its ceramic debeso (half-spherical) filter introduces no metallic flavours to the tea.
Banko-yaki (萬古焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Yokkaichi in Mie Prefecture, Japan. Its characteristic purple hue comes from the mixture of red oxidised iron and blue high temperature-baked iron in the clay.
