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 teapot. I use it daily to make the perfect cup of Sencha!

    I am new to the "real" world of tea. Kevin directed me to this perfect pot for my new Japanese green tea and I have fallen in love! I use it for everything with total satisfaction.
    I must confess, I barely tapped it against my sink and it broke so I am on pot #2! Of course the service from O-cha is first class!

    Great teapot. My previous one (a different model) broke as I was emptying it of leaves the other day, and I am very happy with this as a replacement. Large volume, easy to clean, and makes the best fukamushi I've tasted.

    I was hesitant at first, since I am only familiar with Western-style teapots, and didn't know what to think of the different pour/handle.
    It's been in use for 2 days now, and I am amazed at how easy it is to use, and how perfect for my fukamushi tea. The teastrainer will keep the very small leaves inside, and it pours perfectly, no dripping.
    What a treasure! I am chuffed to bits.!

    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.

    As for cleaning the pot; I had a similar type of pot with a screen on the bottom, and it did not clean well. Rinsing was not sufficient; a hot water rinse and dry would leave the pot with a slight odor.

    Any thoughts about cleaning this pot? I see the screen does not go all the way across.

    A lot of people appreciate the patina that a long used teapot can acquire so normally there is not a need to completely sanitize these teapots so long as you clean them out after each use. However, if you want to do that you can soak it in bleach water for a few hours then allowing it to dry without harming it. As you mentioned, there is no screen on the bottom of this one at all but it doesn't mean a leaf particle won't get stuck in the mesh. Basically, as long as you toss the leaves and rinse water through it you should be okay.

    Will I need to cure/season this pot?

    No, it's ready for use.

    Are there any issues with lead in this teapot or any of the teapots?

    No, no lead in this or any of our teapots.
