Glass teapots make it fun to watch the tea leaves while the tea brews. Japanese green tea is very close to newly-picked tea, and the vivid green of the unfurling leaves shows how full of vigor they are. Seeing the tea brew adds visual delight to the process of preparing tea.
In contrast to the Ivory Kyusu and Yakishime Kyusu teapots that are custom-designed to bring out the best in Ippodo teas, this is an all-purpose teapot suitable for all sorts of teas.
For someone likes to drink a variety of teas, Japanese green tea from Ippodo is one of the variations that makes teatime a pleasure. We recommend this as a suitable everyday teapot for preparing all sorts of teas.
Plenty of space for teabags.
Watch the tea leaves unfurl!
Makes a good pitcher.
Even if you use your usual kyusu teapot to prepare the tea, the glass teapot makes a good pitcher.
Box with teapot motif.
A box with a teapot motif makes this a good present.
Low-key white logo.
Ippodo logo begins to stand out when the tea gains color.

Pretty glass tea pot. Especially useful for watching loose leaf tea unfold and brew. Good size at 700ml. Not too big or too small. Good for solo use or for multiple cups in a group
You really have to hold the cover pushed down to not have leaves or worse have the cover fall down… Other than that it is a good teapot and seems well constructed and equilibrated.
I like the size of this tea pot, and the filter in the lid. However, I was hoping for a tea pot with a tighter lid. When pouring from this tea pot, you have to hold the lid, or it will fall off into your cup.
It looks good, and is well constructed, but the lid needs improvement.
I love this little teapot. It’s the perfect size for me and adds an elegance to tea drinking.
I recently switched from drinking bagged tea to brewing loose green tea and this teapot allows me to easily brew pot after pot without making a huge mess! I like cold, iced green tea and with this glass teapot I can brew up to one liter of green tea for my glass carafe and keep to keep in the fridge. Plus when I want hot tea to enjoy it is nice to be able to make a pot for my family and I to enjoy. Because of this tea pot my daughter has increased her green tea drinking greatly which has made me extremely happy! Thank You Ippodo!
