Japanese tea matches best with Japanese style teapots and cups. In Japan, each cup is freshly prepared, so small teapots are preferred. Green tealeaves should not stay in the water (in the pot) as this makes the tea bitter. A filter can be useful to remove the leaves. Small porcelain teapots and cups fit delicate teas like gyokuro and high-grade sencha, larger stoneware or earthenware pots are good for bancha, genmaicha and hojicha.



The concept of Zero Japan teapots and cups is based on three principles: The products should be attractive, nice to touch, and functional. Zero Japan's products are stoneware (baked at 1200°C). The company is based in the Mino pottery region, which has a pottery history of about 1300 years.

      Mr. Nakano making Tokoname              Tokoname Kyusu

The kyusu , the Japanese teapot with spout and handle in a 90 degree angle, is considered best for preparing gyokuro and sencha, as the tea can be poured till the last drop.

The Tokoname earthenware kyusu is very popular in Japan and used for all tea tasting. The thin but strong, earthenware pot lets the heat escape easily. This is good for the tealeaves as they will not turn bitter when used for a second infusion.
