Midori is "green" in Japanese. As the name implies, this Tokoname teapot has a beautiful light green glaze and is a great Kyusu to brew Shincha for yourself or guests. It has a built-in metal sieve called "Obiami" and it wraps all the way around the inside of the tea pot. This type of sieve promotes a smooth and complete pour by preventing the wet leaves from being "stuffed" up close to the spout.
