We improved and upgraded this item on February 2014. The redesigned Kyusu is thinner and lighter weight than the former Kyusu. Though the form, appearance, and capacity are almost the same, the brewing feel has been improved.
A Kyusu is a traditional Japanese ceramic teapot specially designed to brew green tea. Kyusu are available in all shapes, sizes, and colors. You can buy anything from tiny one-cup Kyusu to gigantic Kyusu that hold enough tea for twelve or more people!
The Kyusu we have selected for you is the most popular size, 360ml (12.67fl oz), perfect for 1 - 3 people. This Kyusu is a very classic natural red color and simple style.
It has a fine mesh filter at the base of the spout of the Kyusu, so even tiny tea leaves (ex: Fukamushi Sencha) will not come out from the Kyusu.
If the mesh filter is too fine, the aroma and taste can't be extracted enough and the filter can easily become blocked.
Our Kyusu mesh filter is the perfect size for all kinds of tea leaves.
