JAPANESE STYLE TEAPOTS

Japanese teapots are known as Kyusu and can be broadly split into 3 groups. 'Yokode', which has a handle on the side of the teapot, 'Atode' with a handle at the back, like most European types and 'Uwade', with a handle above the teapot. We have a great selection of all three to offer.

  1. £142.00
    This exquisite teapot is so perfectly shaped that it’s difficult to believe it is fashioned by an entirely handmade process. That said the maker leaves a little imperfection in each pot in the spirit of wabi-sabi, to celebrate the “beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.” This unglazed teapot is deep brown/black in colour. It has a built in ceramic infuser that helps prevent tea-leaves reaching the cup. As green teas can be brewed several times there is no need to remove them from the pot. It holds 480ml of water.
