Our sleek Black Pine Kyusu is a Tokoname teapot made by the Shunjuu Kiln (春秋窯). The elegant striated design is reminiscent of long dark pine needles. In a quiet tea room, the sound of water boiling in the kettle is said to sound like wind gently blowing through pine trees.
This small kyusu is best suited for higher end teas such as gyokuro or shincha, but can be used for all teas. It has a built-in clay strainer which requires more skill to attach and is best suited for lighter steamed styles of Japanese green teas.
As this is made from unglazed clay, please dry well after use and avoid leaving tea leaves in the pot overnight to prevent mold. Avoid the use of soap or detergents, as they may soak into the clay. Do not put in the dishwasher or microwave.
