Kyusu Yasu Tokonome-yaki
Yasu can mean peaceful or quiet and it can mean flat or smooth. A perfect name for this handmade kyusu from Tokoname, one of the six traditional ceramics centres of Japan. A kyusu of this size is typically used for preparing finer quality sencha or gyokuro. A ceramic strainer is incorporated into the spout.

CARING FOR YOUR TEA WARE : All craft-made ceramic and porcelain tea ware should be treated with more care than you would your daily dinnerware, which can stand the abuse of dishwashers and aggressive detergents. Make it a habit to rinse with fresh water and dry your tea ware immediately after use. Avoid letting tea remain in your cups or bowls for extended periods as more porous glazes and even porcelain will allow stains to develop. Our Samadoyo pieces are made from tough borosilicate glass and will stand being cleaned in the dishwasher.
