Handmade and fired in the Tokoname kilns, this teapot is the perfect mix of form and function. The round handle is easy to hold and the perforated clay strainer is fine enough to strain out even the smallest fukamushi leaves. Etched into the black glaze are simple sakura blossoms which have kept the deep orange tone of the clay. The outer sides have a pleasing texture and the inside is perfectly smooth. The pot holds roughly 250ml of tea and has a perfect fitting lid, preventing spills. Tokoname was one of the six ancient kilns of Japan and the local clay is known for it's reddish color.
Please be mindful of caring for this tea pot. Rinse it well after use and never put it in the dishwasher.
