Kyusu Teapot

The Kyusu is a traditional Japanese teapot known for its side handle. This design makes it easy to pour with one hand, which is ideal for the delicate process of brewing and serving Japanese green teas.

“Kikumaru” refers to the rounded shape, which is not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional for even heat distribution and effective brewing.

The ivory colour gives the teapot a classic, clean, and elegant appearance. This neutral hue complements a wide variety of kitchen and dining styles.

The Takasuke Kikumaru Kyusu teapot come in a box and makes an excellent gift for tea enthusiasts and those who appreciate traditional Japanese culture and artistry.


The teapot is made from high-quality ceramic, known for its durability, heat retention, and ability to enhance the flavour of tea. The ivory glaze adds a smooth finish and a touch of elegance while providing a protective layer that helps preserve the teapot's appearance and functionality over time.

Brewing Japanese Green Tea

The Kyusu is designed primarily for brewing Japanese green teas like Sencha, Gyokuro and Genmaicha. Its shape and size allow for the proper steeping of leaves, to impart from the most flavour.

The small size of the teapot is for the brewing of one or two smaller cups of tea at a time to empty the teapot. More hot water can then be added to the same leaves allowing you to enjoy perfectly-brewed, fresh tea each time.

This teapot has a beautiful built-in strainer at the spout, which prevents loose leaves from escaping into the cup.

Caring for your teapot

It’s recommended to hand wash the teapot with warm water and avoid using detergents to preserve the clay’s natural properties.

Over time, the teapot will develop a patina that enhances the flavour of the tea, adding to the teapot’s charm and functionality.
