HOHRYU (handcrafted Kyusu: 360ml)
|Nickname||Mitchell S (Canada)|
I am very impressed with this Kyusu. It is my first, but I do have a collection of other high quality tea ware.
The clay is very pleasing to hold, and it holds cold and warm temperatures well so adjusting the heat by pre-chilling or warming the teapot before adding tea works nicely.
But most of all I'm impressed with the quality of construction. It's small compared to a western teapot, but it doesn't feel fragile at all.
Pouring using the standard kyusu method with one finger on the lid is very intuitive, and there is no chattering of the lid.
Comparing this to a porcelain gaiwan I own, it just overall feels like a much sturdier and reliable piece of equipment.
Very highly rated!
