350ml (12.32fl oz), diameter: 4.33inch (11cm), height: 2.95inch (7.5cm)
This Kyusu is the most useful and popular size, 350ml (12.32fl oz), perfect for 1 - 3 people. This white porcelain Kyusu has a sophisticated modern design.
This Kyusu is specifically designed to be convenient and easy to use. This is not only a convenient and simple design but also sophisticated and modern. MANTEN of this name means perfect score in Japanese.
Mouth of this Kyusu is wide open, so you can very easily dispose of used tea leaves.
Inner lid near the spout is a little large. It is in order to prevent spilling tea out between lid and body, when pouring into tea cup, in case the Kyusu is filled with water up to full level.
This Kyusu has a ceramic fine mesh filter, not removable mesh filter basket. Many porcelain Kyusu have a small mesh filter basket, so unfortunately the tea leaves can't fully open and therefore the flavor is weak. In many cases, ceramic mesh is not fine but rough like Dobin, which is not suitable for brewing Sencha Fukamushi and Konacha. However, ceramic mesh of this Kyusu is fine, so that you can brew all kinds of Japanese tea, including Sencha Fukamushi and Konacha. (In the unlikely event that you would like to filter out the small specks of Sencha Fukamushi or Konacha, we recommend you use a tea strainer.)
You also can match MANTEN Kyusu with MANTEN Yunomi and Yuzamashi. They are all designed to match as a set (MANTEN Kyusu and Yunomi Set, MANTEN Yuzamashi).
We are sure you will enjoy the simple and sophisticated design of this Yunomi.
