BLACK TAMAKO HIRA KYUSU 350ml | Flat Japanese Teapot
Gyokko Kiln - Tokoname
Regular price$160.00 $160.00 Sale
Unglazed, hand-built flat kyusu from Gyokko kiln, Tokoname.
Kyusu made by using red clay that has been fired twice in low-oxygen conditions, using a pottery technique known as "reduction firing" to oxidize and darken the clay. The bicoloration is obtained by covering part of the teapot with rice husks during firing, preserving its natural red colour.
Being unglazed, the clay will lightly enrich the tea with its minerals and take away some of its bitterness, allowing to brew richer and rounder tasting teas.
A relatively large teapot, ideal for 2-4 people.
