Sencha K003 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 small but round shape is perfect for green tea because the tea leaves are 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.

Please note: Each piece is handmade and may feature small markings from the making process. Current wait time is 6-8 weeks.

Approx Dimensions:  17.8cm width x 14.9cm diameter x 9.5cm height (320cc). Serves 2-4 people. Material: Stoneware (ceramic), Unglazed. Handmade in Japan.
