This pot is truly the best combination of function, authenticity and the "Art of Tea". You will enjoy preparing and serving your tea with this pot almost as much as the tea itself. This teapot has a small capacity, which is the optimum way to experience premium green tea. Brewing 4-6 oz of tea at each infusion allows for a most intense flavor experience.
Pottery: Tokoname, one of the "Six Old Kilns", has been a pottery center in Japan since the early 12th century. It has been a production center for tea ware for centuries.
Tokoname is especially famous for its unglazed teapots.
