Note: Each kyusu is completely handmade and varies slightly in size and volume.

We worked closely with an artisan in Mie Prefecture to design this kyusu to fine specification. Made entirely by hand, each of these kyusu is one-of-a-kind—a companion to be cared for and treasured over a lifetime of tea drinking.

With a pleasing round shape and textured surface, the design of this teapot is a joy at every session. A tight-fitting lid allows tea to pour quickly without leaking. The spout directs the flow into a quick, smooth arc. And, the interior is finished with white glaze, showcasing the tea leaves inside the pot.

Unglazed and made from red clay, this teapot is fired to have a coarse outer texture. Over time, the surface will begin to smooth, gaining a feel and appearance that is unique to your touch.

Artisans working in the centuries-old Banko-yaki tradition are known for their kyusu, and the clay in the region is appropriately sturdy and retains heat well. The Banko-yaki artisan who handcrafts our original Yakishime Kyusu works consistently with a beautiful touch.
