Kyusu ‘Kiku’ White – Nankei Ceramics
This ‘Kiku’ Kyusu teapot is hand crafted by Yokkaichi based ceramic studio Nankei.
It is made from 100% clay (apart from the mesh strainer) in the Banko-yaki style of pottery, and the unique design represents a chrysanthemum flower.
The teapot is made of 4 parts which are crafted separately by specialist artisans. They come together to produce a perfectly balanced teapot made with exacting skill.
The fine mesh filter in the base of the teapot is a unique design ideal for Japanese green tea, as the leaves are often small. Additionally, as it’s raised slightly from the base, it stops tea from over-infusing and prevents extra cups, and/or steeps from becoming bitter.
The modern, yet classic design of this Kyusu makes it suitable for any interior or taste.
Capacity: 230ml (good for 1-2 cups of tea)
Size (Approx): Width (inc. handle) 140mm / Height 80mm / Diameter 100mm

Thank you Yuko for an amazing exchange of conversation. I had to leave to go on a trip to lake Shasta and I didn’t think it would arrive as fast as it did so I received a confirmation that it arrived just the day that I left. super excited to finally get back home and open my package , perfectly packaged and the kyusu teapot is well made and perfect! Thank you!
Beautiful teapot. Elegantly made and very fine. Despite COVID-19 postage delays, the parcel arrived quickly and well packaged. Thank you.
It’s beautiful! I have not used it yet, but it looks great. I was in Kyoto last month and I tried looking for a Kohiki Kyusu just like this one, but couldn’t find it while I was there. I am so happy to have found it finally.
