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.

    Perfect size for one large cup and will work with all types of tea - I now use this teapot for everything.

    I've been brewing in a small french press, and kept justifying not getting a kyusu by purchasing more tea with the money set aside for one. I wish I would have purchased this sooner since it has made my tea noticeably better. I'm drawn to the purist aspects of a kyusu with a ceramic filter, but this one is better designed than the ones I've seen, and, as a bonus, is inexpensive. Both the unglazed interior and sloped bottom help with residual water and keep the leaves drier for better subsequent infusions. I was going to use this as a starter kyusu, and get a nicer one with a ceramic filter later, but I don't really see the need for a "nicer" one now. Form follows function with this kyusu.

    I have been looking to replace my clay teapot for about a year. Reading about various pots from O-cha and debating the differences to suit my needs. Finally settled on the purchase of this Fukamushi teapot. Had to adjust my brewing method slightly but in a few weeks I am enjoying tea is a new way that makes the flavor even more pleasurable. It's the perfect pot for my style of living. Highly recommend this pot for sencha lovers

    I got this teapot because I wanted a teapot that was suitable for my favorite type of tea - fukamushicha - but I did not want to spend 75$ just for this purpose. I like this teapot a lot. I am no expert, and cannot speak to many technical details which I am sure impact the tea. But it seems to work very well for my purposes.

    A great inexpensive kyusu. The fine mesh screen is perfect for fukamushi, but this teapot is fine for any type of green tea. Though the teapot looks fine in the picture, it is much better looking in person. The color is more of a brown than a red. I also like that this kyusu is more masculine looking than some others that o-cha carries. The straight sides and square handle definitely makes this teapot stand out.

    I bought this teapot because I liked the shape and colour of it, also the design of the bottom of the pot intrigued me. It arrive very quickly as things do from your store and so I was able to try it out very quickly. It makes a wonderful cup of tea, and is comfortable and easy to pour. And additional bonus is my wife likes it as well, achieving domestic harmony! Wonderful product.

    I bought this teapot mainly because it was an affordable beginner level tea pot for brewing all types of green tea. The packaging was excellent and the shipping was fast. I was blown away by the quality of craftsmanship of this teapot. It looks way better in reality than it does on the website. Its worth every penny and works like a charm. Highly recommended for anybody who is starting with Japanese green teas. Please keep in mind that it in unglazed and hence, use it only for green teas and not any other type of teas.
