This is the perfect way to introduce yourself to 28 different teas from Nio. First, you get a traditional clay "Kyusu" teapot that is specifically designed to prepare amazing cups of Japanese green tea. You'll also get to try 28 different green teas from all over Japan. In this sampler, you'll get to experience Sencha, Matcha, Hojicha, gyokuro and stem teas all at the same time. You can compare all these teas together and see which one is the best for you!

Red Kyusu Teapot

If you want to brew Japanese green tea in the traditional way, you must use a Kyusu teapot. This black tokoname kyusu is a great way to start exploring the world of Japanese green tea. It is a slightly glazed teapot so it doesn't disrupt the flavor too much and it has a traditional built-in clay filter to ensure that the leaves don't end up in your cup. The reason we recommend using the kyusu is that it provides the maximum amount of space for the leaves to open up and fully release their flavor.

This teapot is made from a natural clay called "Tatsuchi" and then it is fired in a kiln for 12 hours at 1,150 degrees C until it is hardened. The end result is a beautifully smooth and durable teapot that is ideal for all types of sencha, bancha, gyokuro and kukicha.

This teapot can hold 400 milliliters of water
