For all you lefties who've ever felt left out steeping Japanese Greens, we've got you covered! These black kyusus were designed for left-handed folks to comfortably pour their favorite teas, and come complete with an inner mesh strainer.
This particular kyusu holds about 275ml, or 9oz. and has slightly ribbed sides with a ring of unglazed clay around the rim.
*TIP: Never put these pots in the dishwasher and clean well after each use to prevent the mesh from clogging.*
Hohin translates literally to "treasure jar" and refers to Japanese handle-less teapots. The design is like a cross between an easy gaiwan and a shiboridashi, and has a built-in clay strainer. This allows for finer leaf senchas or fukamushis, which might slip through the spout of a shiboridashi. If you haven't used one of these before, I highly recommend it.
This pot holds 125ml, roughly 5oz. of tea.
Please be mindful of caring for this tea pot. Rinse it well after use and never put it in the dishwasher.
