A high quality handcrafted teapot from Arita Japan, perfect for brewing green tea. A small teapot, it would be best used for single cups of green tea. The infuser screen is deep rather than wide and is removable. Suspended off of the floor of the teapot, it allows the wet leaves to drain completely without remaining wet on the floor of the teapot in between subsequent infusions.

Holds 250ml / 8.5oz

This is my first teapot, which I bought with matching teacups. It's the perfect size to fill the two cups, and very easy to clean out. One thing I noticed was that the smaller bits of sencha leaves (not gyokuro) get stuck in the infuser and can be a pain to clean out after re-hydrating. This is more likely because the sencha I used was the oldest stock (a full year) that would ever be available to order (still fresher than anything store-bought) and perhaps was a bit finer than usual, but that's speculation. In any case, very satisfied with this functional, easy to use teapot.

Advantages: Easy to clean, removable screen, aesthetic appeal exactly as advertised

Disadvantages: Smaller leaf bits may get stuck in infuser screen, but cleaning is easy enough as it is removable.

Ease of use is the main thing which comes to my mind when I used this teapot first few times. After a while I also noticed beautiful decorations on the top of the pot. After all I am more utilitarian person than looking for aesthetics.

I control brewing temperature by adding first small amount of cold water at the bottom of the pot and then pouring hot water on top of that. Small holes leading to the nose of the pot are a good scale to measure right amount of cold water.

Between each brewing it is easy to lift up the infuser to avoid pouring hot water on top of the tea leaves. Afterwards cleaning up the infuser is very easy.

This is my kind of tea pot.

Advantages: Easy to measure right amount of water.
Easy to keep leaves away of hot water.
Easy to clean.
Beautiful decorations.
Excellent usability. Handle is well balanced and right size.
