This white porcelain kyusu holds about 120 millilitres, and is compact enough to hold and handle with one hand. It is very good for drawing out the umami flavour that is concentrated within tea leaves. The clean, neat appearance of the white porcelain, which possesses a beautiful translucence, encourages you to thoroughly enjoy teatime.

The way to prepare Japanese tea in a kyusu is to add enough tea leaves to cover the bottom of the teapot, then add hot water that has been cooled to the appropriate temperature. Finally pour out the tea once the tightly twisted tea leaves have unraveled. When you take your first sip, a pleasant sweetness and fragrance will delight you.

This kyusu is hasami-yaki, and was made in Nagasaki prefecture, Japan.
