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.

“Shideikikumaru” refers to the rounded shape, offering a classic and balanced design that is pleasing to the eye and comfortable to use.

The brown hue gives the teapot a natural, earthy look, which is both elegant and understated, fitting well with traditional Japanese aesthetics.

Each teapot is meticulously crafted, ensuring high-quality and durability. The artisans at Isobe Shoten pay great attention to form and function, making sure the teapot not only looks beautiful but also performs exceptionally well, representing a long tradition of craftsmanship that has been passed down through generations.

Due to their craftsmanship and beauty, these teapots are often sought after by collectors of fine teaware.

The Takasuke Shideikikumaru 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 fine clay, which is prized for its ability to retain heat and enhance the flavour of the tea. Clay teapots are known for their porous nature, which allows them to absorb the aroma of the tea over time, enriching the flavour with each use.

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.
