Yamamoto Taisen's artwork.

Banko-yaki (Banko ware) has a roughly 300 years old history. The first Banko pots date back to the Genbun era (1736-1740, Edo period), when a merchant called Nunami Rozan got captivated by the Way of Tea, built a kiln in the town of Asahi, Mie prefecture, and started making his own pottery. What once started as a hobby of a merchant turned to be a world-renowned earthenware, recognized as "Traditional Craft" by the Ministry of Economy in Japan. Today, there are more than 100 Banko-yaki kilns centering around the cities of Yokkaichi and Komono in Mie Prefecture.

The teapot is made of red Banko clay, which reacts with the tannic acid in the tea, smoothing away the bitterness.

This ushirode kyusu is made with great precision, ensuring a beautiful flow without dribbling. Perfect for Japanese green tea and Chinese or Taiwanese oolong tea.

Handling precautions

Initiation:
Before first use, rinse it with hot water, then let it dry completely!

Usage:
Avoid placing it on hot surfaces, like stove, and never use in microwave or oven.

Cleaning:
Tea stain is the natural part of a teapot's "maturing process", but if you prefer to avoid it, rinse the teapot well after every use, do not let the tea leaves sit in it for too long. It is better to avoid dishwashing liquid, but you can use gentle, organic soap to clean your pot. Never use bleach!
Avoid using dishwasher or dryer!
To clean the built-in strainer, run water backwards from the spout, or use a toothbrush or toothpick.

Storage:
After use, always let it dry completely, for if stored away while still wet, it might develop an unpleasant smell or mold.

Non-glazed ceramic tea pots absorb scents and flavours, so only prepare one class of tea in them (green tea, black tea, roasted tea, etc).
