Lauded for its versatility and elegance, the kyusu is truly a workhorse of brewing vessels, being easy to use and able to prepare any Japanese green tea, as well as many other kinds of tea. A great starting point for yourself to add to the collection, or a great gift to the tea lover in your life.
The kyusu is a traditional Japanese teapot that is suitable for all kinds of Japanese tea, though it is most commonly associated with steamed-style green teas, such as sencha. As versatile as they come, the kyusu is actually suitable for brewing certain non-Japanese teas as well.
Elegant and easy-to-use, the most commonly found is the yokode version; it has a side handle attached to the teapot to make it easy to steadily pour and extract every last drop.
This kyusu features a fine meshed in-built strainer suitable for all kinds of Japanese green teas including the deeper steamed, slightly powdery types (fukumushi). The fluid capacity is perfect for two serves.
