For those who make a lot of Japanese green tea, this is the pot for you. It has been designed specifically for brewing fukamushi, or deep steamed tea. The process for making fukamushi breaks down the leaves into much smaller pieces, bringing out a vivid green color and intense flavor. However, in typical teapots the particles will easily sneak through the spout and even in other kyusus the tea can clump towards the spout, decreasing the rapidness of the pour and increasing the steep time. For this reason, the spout is located at the inner bottom of the pot, below the mesh. This way, as the tea pools at the front of the pot while pouring, the water can still escape below.
This particular kyusu is a beautiful off-white and holds about 250ml, or 8oz. It has a modern, yet classic style and will fit in perfectly with an array of different teaware.
*TIP: Never put these pots in the dishwasher and clean well after each use to prevent the mesh from clogging.*
This is the perfect kyusu for making Japanese teas, especially green teas and sencha. The side handle and thick walls make is easy to handle and the high-fired clay doesn't leave any flavors to meddle with your infusion. The inside has a fine mesh strainer which will filter out leaves even from small leaf or fukamushi teas. This pot holds roughly 250ml, or 8 oz.
When steeping Japanese green teas, it is important to extract every last drop from the pot, as any water left will become bitter in the next steep. For that reason, this design makes is easy to shake out the last drop and get the best flavor out of your tea.
*TIP: Never put these pots in the dish washer and be sure to wash them after each use so the mesh doesn't become clogged.*
