The Black Ceramic Gyokuro Teapot is a flat-shaped Kyusu teapot specially designed for brewing Gyokuro tea. The Hohin (宝瓶) which literally translates to “treasure vessel”, refers to a type of teapot without a handle and it is used to brew the highest grade of green tea. Gyokuro is typically brewed under low temperatures, so the teapot does not require a handle as it can be held by placing the thumb over the top of the teapot. The flat shape is designed to give the loose tea leaves ample room to expand and steep freely against the unglazed clay, resulting in maximum flavour and a rich aroma.
