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.*
Hello Tea Friends! As you may know, we had to temporarily close the our brick-and-mortar shop. As a result all of our amazing co-workers are out of work and relying on unemployment, which just doesn't cut it.
If you can, will you please consider adding a tip to your order? The funds collected will go directly to Lili, Joanna, Kevin, Dakota, Ellie, and Niko. You can contribute in as many increments of $5 as you wish :)
I sincerely hope you are safe and healthy in the midst of these uncertain times. Thank you for being a part of our little tea family.

This is a staple for everyone who drinks a lot of tea. Arguably one of the easiest methods for preparing all kinds of tea, the gaiwan (literally bowl with lid) is simple and artful.
This gaiwan is made of thick porcelain and holds roughly 150ml. You can use it solo and pour it into a large cup, or combine it with a strainer and/or pitcher to serve into smaller cups.
If you have never used a gaiwan before, it is an excellent method for making a multitude of different teas, mostly Chinese and Taiwanese greens, reds, blacks, oolongs, and some younger or sheng puerhs.
