When brewing Japanese teas, a teapot known as kyuusu 急須 is traditionally used.


There are a number of teapots available. The open teapot is used by the Japanese Tea Instructors in order to learn about the tew brewing process. By observing the leaves opening we can learn when the tea is ready.

It also helps to identify the aroma of the tea and find out if the catechins have been released. Easy to clean, it has a fine mesh metal sieve and due to its size, is also suitable for training small groups.
