Banko Kyusu

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.*
