The kyusu is a traditional Japanese teapot that is suitable for all kinds of Japanese tea. Some versions of the kyusu have no handle at all, though the yokode (handled version pictured here) is the most common. It’s often associated with preparing 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 yokode version of the kyusu 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.
