    Step 2

    Add 5 grams of tea leaves into the teapot. You can preheat the teapot before adding the leaves by pouring some of the hot water in, waiting 30 seconds and then pouring it out.

    Once the tea leaves have been added to the teapot, you can gently pour in 150ml of water

    Step 4

    Put the lid onto the teapot and let the leaves brew for 1-2 minutes. 1 minute works well for most sencha teas, while 2 minutes is ideal for Gyokuro. After the tea is done brewing, you can pour it out into your glass and the built in filter will keep the leaves from pouring into your cup.

    After you have infused the leaves once, you can still use them 2-3 more times. Use the same temperature water, the same amount of water but only 20 seconds for each subsequent brewing.

100% Hand Made in Japan and Ethically Sourced

This Black Kyusu is handmade in Japan by skilled Japanese artisans using traditional scultpting and glazing techniques. Each teapot is made according to a precise set of measurements, but there may be slight variability and each one can be considered a unique piece.

Made out of premium Japanese Tokoname clay

Clay from Tokoname, Japan is considered to be the best material for Kyusu teapots. It has a vibrant color and a low porosity, making it perfect for holding water. When this clay is carefully sculpted and glazed, it creates an elegant design that is sure to bring a touch of authenticity and tradition to your tea routine.

Benefits of the Black Kyusu

There are many benefits of using this teapot. First, it will allow the leaves more space to expand and release their flavor into the water. This separates it from the tea strainer, which can cramp the tea leaves into a smaller space and produce less of a rich flavor. Also, the built in side handle makes it easy to pour the tea with just a simple turn of the wrist. Finally, the teapot has a built in filter which separates out the tea leaves from the water and quickly stops the infusion.
