Though there are various kyusu (Japanese teapot) of the traditional crafts, Tokoname ware is overwhelming famous for the kyusu which have the largest market share. The traditional teapots from Aichi Prefecture not only have a beautiful surface but also make the taste of tea more mellow and smooth. The reason for this is the earth and manufacturing method.

 

The earth of Tokoname ware contains much iron which reduces a bitter taste of green tea. And the pottery doesn’t have a glaze on a surface. That increase the effect of the earth.

Tokoname kiln is one of the oldest six kilns in Japan and the history of the pottery started in the 12th century. The kyusu teapot has received high reputation for good drainage, easiness to pick up a knob, high-performance of a tea strainer, and sealability of a lid.

 

Unlike Arita (Imari) ware, Kiyomizu ware or Kutani ware, it doesn’t have pomposity. But natural gloss which an earth put out is the biggest charm of the pottery.
