Black Ceramic Gyokuro Teapot

Black Ceramic Gyokuro Teapot


Arita-yaki (有田焼) originates from the small town of Arita in Saga prefecture, Kyushu, which is known as the birthplace of Japanese porcelain. This teapot is known as Hohin (宝瓶), which means 'teapot with no handle’. The flat shape allows the tealeaves to spread slowly and is specifically intended for brewing the highest grade of green tea; gyokuro. Without the lid, the teapot can be used for serving light snacks and side dishes.
