Product Detail

The "Toumei Kyusu" (Clear Teapot), a Japanese tea extractor is the first redesign of the Kyusu since it was first used in 1756, more than 260 years ago.
Our philosophy is "Making tea extremely simply", so the teapot is designed with the modern lifestyle in mind.
Using a special technique, the body is made from a thick resin, a glass-like transparency.
Teapot characteristics: "Unbreakable", "Heat insulating" and "Space-saving".
It is sturdy, so you don't need to worry about breaking if dropped.
This pot isn't hot to touch, so we removed the handle.
Therefore, it doesn't take up space in the cupboard and is easily stackable.
This teapot won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018.
A manual is available which can tell you how to brew three times.
