Authentic hand-crafted kyusu teapot suitable for Japanese as well as Chinese and other teas. This tiny teapot is designed to brighten up your tea table, and with its rear-handle makes it resemble a western style teapot. Perhaps this is the ideal teapot to use for your afternoon serving of Japanese wakocha.
The potter continues to use the Akahata white glaze on a reddish soil to bring out this beautiful glossy white surface. With use over time the glaze will start to show a craquelure which will add to the flavor of the teapot and its expression.
Contains: 1x mini kyusu teapot (200 ml)
Bowl size: H9cm x W7.5cm x D13cm;
