A very pretty glazed teapot handcrafted in Tokoname Japan. Features a very finely meshed removable stainless steel infuser basket for easy cleaning. This teapot is taller rather than wide making it especially suitable for deep steamed (fukamushi) green tea. Of course it will easily handle medium steamed green teas as well.
Although you could brew gyokuro or light steamed green teas in this teapot in a pinch, due to the nature of the larger leaf particles and the need for room for leaf expansion, a basket type of teapot would not be your first choice for those types of green teas. We suggest you look in the Asamushi | Gyokuro | Light-Steamed Teapots cateogry of you are mostly brewing those types of teas.
370ml / 12.5 oz capacity.
