Masaki Tachi'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 “shidei” teapot is one of the hallmarks of Banko-yaki. It is made of red Banko clay, which is exceptionally rich in iron. When the clay is fired in reduction chamber, the heated iron particles turn the color of the clay from deep red to purplish-brown: the signature color of Banko ware. They say the more the teapot is used, the more beautiful and lustrous it becomes. The unglazed purple clay reacts with the tannic acid in the tea, smoothing away the bitterness.

This yokode kyusu is made with great precision, ensuring a beautiful flow without dribbling. Perfect for Japanese green teas.

Handling precautions

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

Usage:
Avoid placing it on hot surfaces, like a stove, and never use it in a 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, and 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 the dishwasher or dryer!
To clean the built-in strainer, run water backward from the spout, or use a toothbrush or toothpick.
As you touch it, the natural moisture of your hands might leave stains on the surface. You can easily remove that by gently rubbing it with your fingers.

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 flavors, so only prepare one class of tea in them (green tea, black tea, roasted tea, etc).
