Wonderful red clay teapot made by Japanese artist Shimizu Takayuki – Kohokujo: the son of master Hokujo – Shimizu Genji.
The small batch of small sized teapots were made especially for us. We have been waiting for them from early summer.
Each teapot is made from the same unique blend of red clay that father and son use for most of their teapots. This “high iron” is quite universal but it makes wonders with every roasted (at every level of roasting) oolongs. It can balance rough notes in tea and underline the aroma. It’s one of our favourite clay for traditional oolongs.
Craftmanship is just perfect – pour is fast and precise – with no drips and leaks.
Lid fits perfectly. No move.
Each teapot by Kohokujo comes with wooden tomobako signed by the artist*
*box due to hand signing might be little bit different than on the photo.
