Plum Blossom Teapot
Hand Crafted in Tokoname, Japan
The handcrafted, hand-etched Plum Blossom Teapot exemplifies the iconic Tokoname kyusu. Highly refined clay & masterful technique yield an impeccably smooth, yet unglazed surface. The Ita-Ami (the fine mesh stainless steel filter screen) gives this teapot superb function for premium loose-leaf teas.
When deep-steamed tea leaves such as fukamushi or chumushi sencha are processed through extended steaming, they become brittle and often break during the roasting & drying process. Small broken leaves, often a sign of poor quality in other teas, signify HIGH quality in Japanese green teas. These delicate leaves must be prepared in a teapot with a fine mesh screen and a spout that decants quickly. This teapot is ideal for preparing Japanese green teas.
