A teapot is a vessel used for steeping tea leaves or herbs in boiling water. The most common form of teapots are made from ceramic, although historically they were often constructed from metal (particularly brass) and wood. Teapots usually have an opening with a lid at the top where the dry tea and hot water are added, a spout through which the brewed tea is poured out, and a handle by which the pot can be held while pouring.

Japanese Teapot: Frequently asked questions

What types of Japanese Teapot are there and what determines a good product?

There are many types of Japanese teapots, but the most common ones fall into two categories. The first is called a kyusu (箸手), which literally translates to “tea-hand”. This type of pot has an elongated spout and handle that allows it to be easily held with one hand while pouring hot water over tea leaves in the other. It’s also possible for someone to pour from this style of pot without removing their hands from its handles. Kyusu pots can come in all shapes and sizes, though they’re usually small enough so as not to take up too much space on your table or countertop during use. A second category is known as chawan (茶碗). These bowls have lids that fit snugly onto them when closed; some even feature built-in strainers within their lids. Chawan are used primarily for whisking matcha powder into frothy milk before drinking it – hence why you’ll often see these referred to by names like “matcha bowl” instead of simply “Japanese teacup.”

The most important thing is the quality of clay. It should be a good, pure white color with no impurities or spots. Also, it must have a nice weight and feel to it when you hold it in your hand. If you can find one that has been fired at least twice (a double-fired teapot), then this will make for better heat retention and easier cleaning as well.

Who should use a Japanese Teapot?

Anyone who wants to enjoy the full flavor of their tea.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Japanese Teapot?

There are many different types of Japanese teapots, and they can be made from a variety of materials. Some people like to buy their tea pots based on the material that they’re made out of because it is said that certain materials will affect the taste or aroma of your tea in some way. For example, ceramic teapots are known for retaining heat well so you don’t have to worry about burning yourself when pouring hot water into them. On the other hand, clay teapots tend to retain more flavor than ceramics do so if you want something with an earthy feel then this may be what you should look for. Other factors include size (of course), price range and design style but these things really come down to personal preference as there isn’t any one right answer here. You just need to find something that works best for YOU.

The first thing to look out for is the material. There are mainly three types of materials used in Japanese teapots, which are Yixing clay (Purple Clay), Iron and Porcelain. Each type has its own unique characteristics that affect how it brews tea as well as what kind of tea you can use with them. For example, porcelain or iron pots cannot be used with oolong teas because they will give off a metallic taste while yixing clay gives off an earthy tone when brewing green teas due to their porous nature; hence why we recommend using these two kinds exclusively for Chinese Green Teas like Dragon Well Tea or Long Jing Tea.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Japanese Teapot?


Japanese Teapots are made from high quality clay and fired at a very high temperature. This makes them extremely durable, heat resistant and able to brew tea for many years without losing their original shape or performance. They also have an elegant design that is pleasing to the eye as well as being functional in use.


The disadvantages of a Japanese teapot are that they can be expensive, and some people may not like the fact that it is made from clay.
