Regular price $120.00

Shipping calculated at checkout.

This unglazed kyusu is crafted by the Jinsui Kiln in Tokoname, the region most famous for its unglazed teaware. This teapot makes a wonderful tasting teapot for two, or a long tea session for one.

This teapot is made from a clay specific for Tokoname known as "shiro gome," or "white sesame."

This cream colored tea pot will patina with use; please take care to rinse all tea and leaves immediately after brewing if you wish to prevent staining. 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.
