Fujisou: Supreme Yakijime Teapot

450ml

Bankoyaki style stoneware from Mie Prefecture.

Fujiso's teapots are simple in appearance but are perfectly made for brewing tea.

  • There is a built-in strainer. Each hole is made by hand. The number and the size of holes were decided after repeated trial and error. This process was extremely important because the material, number, and size of the holes for the strainer greatly influence the flavour of the tea.
  • The rim of the lid has notches, this helps to circulate the air inside and makes it easy to pour the tea. Even if the rim becomes moist, the notches help to prevent the body and the lid from sticking.
  • The 'V' shaped spout forms a smooth curve from the strainer and is designed to prevent the tea from dripping when pouring.
  • A glaze is applied only on the inside of the pot to help prevent tea stains. The smooth surface also helps the brewed tea leaves from sticking.
  • The wide opening makes it easy to throw out and wash the inside of the teapot.

 

  • Dimensions: (approx) body width: 12 cm ; top diameter: 10 cm, height: 11 cm
  • Volume: 450 cc (15.3 fl oz)
