If deep steamed (fukamushi-cha) green tea is your thing, then this handcrafted Banko-yaki teapot should fit your needs nicely. It has been designed specifically for brewing deep steamed green tea, although it is suitable for all green teas including gyokuro. Unique features of this teapot include:

  • Backward sloping bottom. This effectively separates water from the wet leaves between infusions!
  • Large, round, extra-fine stainless steel infuser removeable infuser screen. Does an especially good job of filtering the characteristically fine leaf particles of deep steamed green tea.
  • Inner rim lip extrudes into the teapot, preventing dripping from the rim when teapot is tipped to an extreme angle.
  • Square handle for an easier grip!
  • Rubber tip on the spout - easier to pour with less mess!

If you are looking for just one type of Japanese teapot that will brew just about any type of green tea, this item would make a very good choice.

Great all around pot. I wouldn't have bought a second one if it wasn't!

Advantages: I usually make larger amounts of tea and the generous size fit the bill.

Disadvantages: No negatives for me.

So happy with this purchase! This teapot can handle any kind of tea, but I would not use it for houjicha or genmaicha because the inside is unglazed clay. Wonderfully functional and a great size. Recommend!

Advantages: Excellent filter that can handle every kind of leaf. Attractive appearance.

Disadvantages: None

Simply works great, and the size is nice for making 4 to 8 ounces of tea (1 to 2 cups). The glaze is attractive and the handle is comfortable in the hand.

Advantages: Easy to clean.

Disadvantages: None.

This has become my favorite pot to use.. Im happy with basic clay color.. The design feels utilitarian and masculine to me, and I actually prefer cute pots and cups, but functionality trumps all of the above for me.. If I wanted anything, I would want a choice to have a pot half this size (since I brew 5 oz, Im unsure if preheating is working rigjht with all the extra clay)..

SLOPED BOTTOM:
Im not sure if the sloped bottom makesw any difference, since the fukamushi gets mushy and stays pretty wet even after you have poured all you can pour.. And the bulk of the tea (after a pour) ends up on the screen rather than the bottom anyway..

STAINLESS STEEL SCREEN:
It is a very fiine screen.. And fine enough so that tea does not stick into the filter (and becom a pain to clean out).. And I do not smell and taste metal as I was afraid I would.. O_cha said it was a higher grade of SS.. I wish there were more info on this 316 SS maybe).

But all things considered, I feel this is the best choice for brewing fukamushi.. Since any teabag I have tried leaves a taeabag taste.. I dont wish to use plastic.. The only other choice is this SS filter..

Advantages: Extremely functional.
