A very nice handcrafted teapot from Tokoname Japan. While perfect for brewing multiple or single cups of green tea, this teapot was designed for deep steamed green tea (fukamushi-cha) but is suitable for all green teas including gyokuro. Due to the fine, sometimes dust-like nature of fukamushi leaf, small bits of leaf can often get stuck in the stainless steel mesh of many teapots. Unique to this design is the built-in stainless steel infuser screen which covers just a small area of the inside part of the spout.

    This is a great teapot. It's the perfect size for 1-2 people, and it's what I will recommend to anyone looking for a pot for green tea.

    The fact that I ordered this kyusu twice – I dropped the first one – says it all. A nice handmade kyus for a decent price. You can use it for all kinds of green tea.

    I decided to purchase a second kyusu for deep steamed tea and larger servings than my existing can make. This is a nicely made pot that is attractive and well priced.

    I find myself using this pot more than I expected. The large lid makes cleaning easy. The screen cleans easily with a stream of water from the tap. I find myself reaching for this pot over my smaller kyusu even when I want a small single serving or a light steamed sencha..

    This fukamushi teapot from Tokoname is as attractive as it is functional. It does an excellent job of steeping the tea to perfection and straining the tea from the leaves. While it is for deep-steamed teas, it can also be used for other green tea types.

    This teapot is perfectly adequate for brewing any kind of green tea. The style is charming and simple, the clay is fairly porous and terracotta-like and the mesh strainer is fine enough to work with fukamushi but coarse enough not to get clogged. The one small drawback is that the strainer is not removable and the tea pot requires an occasional soaking to remove the tiny tea particles that get stuck where they can't easily be rinsed out. Great value, and I am considering buying a second one.

    Does this teapot have a handle and if not, how does one pour the tea without burning one's hands?

    Yes, it has a handle. If you look at the picture you can see it coming off at an upward angle from the back.
