Nankei Pottery designed this kyusu (Japanese tea pot) in a simple and linear fashion with the intention that this teapot would be an appropriate fit into any space. The wide and shallow shape is very well-suited to enjoy green tea, as it allows the tea leaves to spread in a spacious manner. This tea pot also has a good design for water flow. It is therefore very easy to clean and care for and has a sturdy base. The modern, yet classic design of this tea pot makes it suitable for any interior or taste. Enjoy!
The white beige "Shiro-neri" is made with a clay called "Haku-dei (white mud)" which was widely popular in the Taisho era, to recreate the classic beauty. The soft and gentle color will bring a sense of tranquility to your space at any time of day. Please also enjoy the transformation of your kyusu with time, use, and care as the non-glazed pottery will demonstrate changes.
- Nankei Pottery also has this flat kyusu available in black matte “Kuro-neri”, which may be more resilient to the stains of tea.
