A high quality handcrafted teapot from Tokoname Japan, perfect for brewing green tea in every way. Unique to this design is the "swing" type of stainless steel infuser screen (see detailed images for a more accurate view.) The infuser screen is curved and is suspended off of the floor of the teapot, allowing the wet leaves to drain completely without remaining wet on the floor of the teapot in between subsequent infusions.

Holds 360ml / 12oz

This is a wonderful teapot, beautifully made and a pleasure to use. It is of a very high quality, and again as with other items I have purchased from O-Cha, it is something I will use regularly, and cherish for a lifetime

Advantages: Does everything required, and looks good at the same time

Disadvantages: None

This is my first kyusu, and I think I did very well for myself! :)

The pot has an attractive brown-ish metalic-black color to it, as well as an interesting indention design on it.

I took the time to measure, and yes, it does in fact hold 12 fluid oz of water (though I only fill it to around 5).

The pour of the pot is smooth, while not being overly fast, which could cause minor spillage (happens with my Yixings sometimes). I have found that it's somewhat difficult to get "all" of the tea liquor out, but the filter makes that almost a moot point.

The filter on the inside is actually quite nice, it's bowl shaped, fitted to the sides of the pot, and slightly elevated off the bottom to keep any residual tea liquid from steeping the leaf.

If you are phobic about dust in your tea, I wouldn't recommend this. The filter, while not at all massive, is not the finest on the market. A fukamushi tea would slip through this with relative ease. As as comparison, the medium steamed Daily Sencha leaves a fair amount of particulate in the cup (a non issue in my case, I never strain my teas)

My only wish would be for this to come in a left-handed model. :P

Advantages: Aesthetically pleasing

Good pour

Bowl filter keeps tea from extra infusing

Disadvantages: Filter is not for dust-a-phobes

Not left-handed (though I've had no actual issue on this point. :P)

This is a wonderful Tokoname Teapot! I especially like the fact that it can hold 12 ounces of water, since I generally use a larger teacup.

Advantages: Great Teapot
