Specially designed to avoid clogging when you pour Fukamushi teas! This special teapot has a built-in cylindrical metal strainer so that the water can move around the tea leaves instead of clogging. Deep steamed teas are beautifully smooth and sweet, but they have finer leaf particles that can clog the filters of traditional teapots.
This high quality clay teapot is made in Japan from smooth, oxidized black clay. The clay of this teapot can even accentuate the savory flavors of the tea, and add a sligt minerality to them. Just like with Gyokuro, Fukamushi teas can also develop a stronger savory note, and this teapot allows you to realize the full potential of these special deep steamed teas.
