A "kyusu" (Japanese tea pot) made with a traditional Bankoyaki (萬古焼) ware technique. Nankei Pottery is based in Yokkaichi, Mie Prefecture which is at the heart of Bankoyaki ceramics. This kyusu has a simplistic and timeless design which was originally announced by Nankei Pottery 50 years ago, well-suited for the modern lifestyle. With its volume capacity of 240ml, this kyusu is perfect to make 2-4 cups to share tea time amongst family and guests. 

The black matte "Kuro-neri" will be resilient to the stains of tea but please also enjoy the transformation of your kyusu with time, use, and care as the non-glazed pottery will demonstrate changes.


  • For this black matte color, it is typical for one to notice a reddish colored ring at the rim of the pot (i.e., where the lid sits). This happens as a natural result of the pottery process and is called "suri-awase" in Japanese which is done to appropriately piece the lid and pot together. The red color simply reveals the clay’s original color.
  • Nankei Pottery also has this kyusu available in white beige "Shiro-neri" option. See below for strainer options.
