Authentic hand-crafted kyusu teapot suitable for Japanese as well as Chinese tea. This tiny teapot is designed to be suitable for Chinese style tea brewing, as well as savoring small portions of Japanese tea. 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 it’s expression.
