How do I remove leaves stuck in the filter of my kyusu?
You can try these options to dislodge these leaves.
Pour water in through the spout, close the lid with water inside, and then shake to try to dislodge any leaves from the filter.
Let the teapot dry completely. Then fill with boiling water, which can flush out any leaves stuck in the filter.
Gently brush the filter with a toothbrush to remove leaves. Be careful—these handmade filters can break with vigorous scrubbing!
