Sencha 690 Teapot Black
Japanese ceramic studio Nankei specialise in the production of these beautiful teapots that are made from an iron rich clay body.
This clay is the reason they are able to produce a teapot without a glaze, naturally turning black during the firing and offering a smooth surface with tiny irregularities inside that mellow the taste of the tea and make it slightly less astringent.
The tall, wide shape of the 'Sencha 690' is perfect for all types of tea, with the leaves being able to steep slowly. Inside is a traditional style tea strainer attached at the entrance of the spout. This a teapot that will only improve with age.
