    This teapot is really wonderful item! Nice to hold such an artifact 🙂 in a hand and the material is quite lovely too. The drain is not so fast as in porcelain pot, but on the other side there almost no drops thereafter. Also super easy and fast to clean through the nose.

    A beautiful flat teapot made with the Mogake technique (the clay was covered in seaweed before firing, leaving traces). It is 140ml filled to the top, which makes it ideal for brewing gyokuro, but I also use it to brew some of the more pronounced senchas. Thanks to the flat cylindrical shape, the tea leaves are distributed evenly across the area (I give it a slight swirl for the later brews to redistribute them). The kyusu is perfectly balanced—stands steadily when laid on the handle. I cannot overstate how much I enjoy using it, and even though each piece is unique and different, mine has a lovely dark color as in the pictures which goes great with the orange hue of the clay and the bronze gleaming seaweed traces.

    This pot is great. I did a bunch of research on this style low profile by Master Kamimura and found various ml versions on other sites. This 100 ml is perfect for me and just an overall base staple to your sessions. Especially in today’s age. The other reviews regarding the lid spillage are true, but the simple remedy to this to play with the hole on top until the spout is 100% down and then release. Great pot, nice flare. Essential as a starter
