Our ceramic Shizuka tea set is a traditional Japanese yokode kyusu style pot. At first glance the most striking features of the kyusu teapot is the ergonomic side handle. This handle allows more control when pouring and is easier on the wrist. Making it a must have for those who prefer to brew in multiple infusions, or gong fu style. Finished with a smooth grey satin glaze the Shizuka teapot is accompanied by four matching teacups.
Teapot with built in strainer: 7 oz | Teacups: 1.7 oz
When pouring from a kyusu teapot it is important to pour the tea in rounds. This means that the first pouring should only partially fill each of the teacups at a steady pace. Then repeat the process again, but in reverse order; last teacup back to the first. This method ensures that each teacup is filled uniformly. If you were to fill each cup one by one, the time it takes to do so would alter the composition of the tea by the time you got to the last cup, due to the tea leaves infusing longer in the pot
