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.
