At about 330 grams, it may feel a little heavy at first, but as you get used to using it, it will come to feel like an extension of your own hand. This unique teapot even makes the simple act of pouring tea a joy.

The Kiyomizu-yaki tradition began in Kyoto City in the 16th century. Works range from beautiful everyday utensils, to refined works of art displayed in museums. For our Large Porcelain Kyusu—a favorite for local Kyoto-ites’ daily bancha—we chose to work with an artisan from the Kiyomizu-yaki tradition dear to us in Kyoto.

The teapot's design facilitates tea making by having a small, half-dome-shaped, non-removable ceramic strainer built into its spout that prevents clogging with both fine, powdered tea and large tealeaves like bancha.

One of the keys to making delicious tea is to make sure to pour out every last drop from the teapot. In order to make this easy to achieve, the teapot is designed with the spout located perpendicular to the handle so that it
                        naturally points downwards as you twist your right hand.
