Screen Mesh Filter, Ceramic Filter
Kyusu ‘Kurokusube’ Large – Nankei Ceramics
This ‘Kurokusube’ Kyusu teapot is a signature design of Yokkaichi based ceramic studio Nankei.
It is made from 100% clay (apart from the mesh strainer) which is high in iron content. Iron is considered to enhance and mellow the flavour of Japanese Green Tea.
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.
There is a choice of two filter types. Firstly, there is the traditional ceramic filter.
Alternatively, the screen 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: 320ml (good for 1-3 cups of tea)
Size (Approx): Width (inc. handle) 165mm / Height 97mm / Diameter 95mm

Love this teapot. It’s gorgeous, the size is perfect, how it feels is my hand is perfect, and it makes my morning tea routine all the more pleasurable. Service as always is fantastic. Still can’t get over how quickly my orders arrive all the way from Japan. Thank you!

This teapot is so gorgeous. Love the shape, size, feel and look. It feels like my own personal special treat in the morning. Unfortunately I droped it and it broke as any cermaic would, but loving it as much as I did, I purchased it again. Service as always, perfect, helpful, generous, and kind. Thank you!

incredible quality, beautiful item. thank you!
Perfect little teapot. Zero complaints.
Absolutely love the teapot. The quality of workmanship really did surpass my expectations and I have high expectations. Best part is the design of pouring with just the twist of my wrist. So much easier to use. The color and texture go perfectly with the Enchu black tea/coffee mugs I bought with their grayish color inside. The color really does show off the nice bright colors of the different teas. I can’t say enough about this teapot and mugs. I drink more tea just so I can use the teapot and mugs more everyday.
The service is super duper. Yuko is the best to work with and I love getting the nice packages she takes such care in wrapping. The whole experience makes me want to come right back and buy more.

My order arrived very fast and was packed well for protection. The items are beautiful and I’m very happy with them. The teapot was smaller than I expected initially but I think that’s because I’m from Canada where we use huge tea pots. Now I love the smaller pot. I also love cups that I bought. Highly recommend.
I gave this as a gift to my husband who has recently gotten into fine teas. He absolutely loves it. It’s beautiful, stylish, and it makes a HUGE difference in the taste of the tea. It’s become a regular part of his day.
Amazing quality Kyusu pot, with freaky fast shipping! Thanks again!

This is one of the most refined Kyushu I ave seen. It’s’ blue/black color does remind one of iron. Balance is excellent. It exudes an ambiance of distant times. Beautiful. Lance
