Known as "kyusu", this style of teapot is commonly used in Japan to brew green tea.
Made in Tokoname, a region in Japan famous for its high-fired stoneware, this terracotta red Hiramaru teapot is sized for brewing single servings of your favorite tea. It can also be used to brew small amounts for a group. The side-handled teapot is designed for ease of use. The hollow handle does not become hot and is easy to hold. The interior spout of the teapot is lined with a mesh strainer to prevent the leaves from being poured from the pot.
