This is a new, updated style of our original Earthenware Kyusu. We changed from the old to new design in October 2011.
The Kyusu we have selected for you is the most popular size, 360ml (12.67fl oz), perfect for 1 - 3 people. This Kyusu has a very simple design.
This Kyusu is made in the Tokoname region. The features of this Kyusu are the earthen surface and functional and traditional design. To bring the earthen atmosphere, a specific type of clay, used rarely in Tokoname, is used. The clay has not only earthen atmosphere but also good fabrication yield. So, this type of clay is starting to become quite popular. And greenish gray glaze adds WABI-SABI atmosphere to earthen surface.
This Kyusu has a fine mesh filter at the base of the spout, so even tiny tea leaves such as 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's mesh filter is the perfect size for all kinds of tea leaves.
Lead-free. Made in Japan.

(Please note there is a possibility that the type of mesh filter is changed. The mesh filter may differ slightly from the actual photo.)
