Yamada Yūtaro's artwork.

As is often the case with traditional craftsmanship, the famous pottery town, Tokoname is also facing a rapid decrease in potters. Yamada Yūtaro is one of the most promising artists from the youngest Tokoname ceramist generation. He collects clay himself from the mountains around the town, and does all the processing on his own, making beautiful teapots living up to Tokoname's name.

The clay he used for this teapot was mined about half a century ago from the rice fields in Aichi prefecture, on the Chita peninsula during the urbanization. This traditionally mined, deep red shade clay is called honshudei, and is extremely rare and precious these days.

In continual use, the surface will gradually become smoother and shinier.

Thanks to its flat and wide shape, this teapot is particularly suitable for premium quality teas, because as they have larger space to open, the leaves graze each other less, releasing less catechin, thus revealing the tea's true sweetness and gentle elegance.

Place of Origin: Tokoname, Japan

This teapot is suitable for either Japanese, Chinese or Taiwanese 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 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).

Incredible Kyusu! Great clay (maybe the best I have seen so far) and wall thickness - if you like yamakai sencha, this pot will make you very happy (the straight lines of the taste profile come out even more present). It is really an experience, comparing porcelain and this kyusu, or even different shudei kyusus with that pot.

This is a well engineered pot with a lightning-fast pour. It makes great tea as well. Bits of leaf do tend to get stuck in the bottom of the filter, but I have found this to be the case with ball filters. A solution is to fill the pot with water, put on the lid, hold the pot and lid tight, and shake the pot back and forth vigorously. Be careful not to lose your grip! This always dislodges the stuck leaves for me, and I always find leaf bits after doing this on all my ball filter pots.

I was surprised by how light this pot is. Despite its look, it is rather delicate. I pours well and the ball filter catches most of the leaves. It looks very well proportioned and elegant. The only downside is the ball filter. Given the shallowness, the ball filter is touching the bottom of the pot. Small leaves get wedged between the ball filter and the bottom of the pot. It takes a bit of effort to dislodge the leaves, but it's not a deal breaker. I like this pot very much.
