Product of Masaki pottery by Master Masaki Tachi.

Banko-yaki originated during the Edo era in Mie prefecture, where the merchant-turned-craftsman Nunami Rozan, who was captivated by the Way of Tea, began using a kiln to bake teapots and other goods. Today the seeds of one man’s hobby have grown into a world-renowned class of pottery, of which the Shidei Kyusu—recognized as a “Traditional Craft” by the Japanese Minister of Economy in 1979—is a proud symbol. These teapots are created using local iron-rich clay and shaped by reduction firing, resulting in an unglazed dark brown finish that reacts with the tannic acid naturally found in tea, thus reducing its bitter taste.

Handling Precautions
