Ratings and Reviews of Fukamushi Teapot 16513
Matthew Amster-Burtonmai 20, 2014, 12:00Simply 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.
Robert mckeeoct. 10, 2013, 12:00This 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)..
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..

Mate Zecmai 3, 2013, 19:44Just a quick tip that wasn't immediately obvious to me: If you keep getting larger leaf particles in your tea, check if the infuser screen is aligned well with the spout, especially near the bottom. Since I did this it's been brewing perfectly.

Aesthetically as an artist/craftsman, I believe form should always follow function, and though it won't win any prize for intricacy of design, I enjoy the understated beauty of its shape and color. There is loveliness in the pot's simplicity and fits my personality.
Tim Colessept. 9, 2012, 09:00The specialized design for Fukamushi sold it from the start and does what it says in the diagram as only the really tiny particles are left in the cup at the end. Also the capacity makes it so much easier to brew a cup and get back to work quickly as my other main teapot has a 120ml limit. Aesthetically it's not a knockout but the Banko clay retains temperature really well. Five out of five overall, as for function alone it's faultless.
