A Tokoname Kyusu Teapot in the traditional red. The colour is not from a glaze, but as a result of the iron-rich, deep red clay for which the Tokoname region is renowned. 

This teapot has a fine stainless steel mesh strainer, and holds 260ml, perfect for one serving of tea. 

This kyusu was made in Aichi prefecture, Japan.

About the Brand

Tokoname Kyusu are teapots that represent Japan and have a long history and tradition dating back to the Edo period. Tokoname teapots are made from soil that contains a lot of iron oxide, when used the teapot reacts with tannins in the tea, removing bitterness and making it mellow and delicious. The teapot becomes more lustrous the more it is used, and the more it is used, the more it changes in flavour. Enjoy a delicious cup of tea in a Tokoname teapot made from Aichi Tokoname ware.
