Nankei Pottery

Kyusu Teapot - Teppatsu

$ 81

Experience brewing Japanese premium green tea with this tea pot by Nankei that enhances the tea through processes within the tea pot that brings out the most authentic flavors, perfect for serving 2 cups with the Tea Cup - Cone, Matte.

The most standard teapot shape that has been made for over 50 years, the Teppatsu is perfect for brewing Sencha, and was designed to resemble the shape of a monk holding an iron bowl. While utilizing Banko-ware, and without any glaze, there are fine irregularities within the tea pot that help reduce the bitterness of tea while making it mellow and more delicious. They also use their patented strainer that stops the teapot from clogging with tea leaves and gives you a clean pour.

The Black color contains a lot of iron and is baked in a way that causes a natural dark color that changes over time the more you use it. While the Sand color recreates the “white clay” that was popular back in the Taisho Era. The light gray/beige color gives off a warm glow, perfect for any dining setting.

Patented Strainer

The patented stainless steel bottom mesh allows for the tea leaves to spread evenly while stopping any clogging when pouring, and can strain even the finest of tea leaves.

Nankei

Originally established in 1913, Nankei started out as a pottery shop extracting and excavating soil, elutriating it, and then selling it. Since then, for about 50 years they have recreated the shop to begin creating their own lifestyle products utilizing Banko-ware hoping that the use of natural products will enrich our daily lives.
