Maru - Side Handle Tea Pot

€95,00 EUR

  • Delicate and beautiful small matte tea pot for a single cup of tea
  • Collaboration between modern design and craftsmen

This exceptionally lightweight Tokoname teapot is fired with a cobalt pigment added to the clay, which gives the teapot a look of refinement. Because the strainer inside the pot is made from the same material, the original taste of the tea does not get affected, as it would have with the metal strainer.

This tea strainer, which was designed to have fine holes in a thin flat ceramic plate, and special method was used to ensure that the strainer part does not clog easily. The lid goes through a process called “rubbing the lid” where it rubs against the body, making it highly sealed and resistant to leakage. By using this tea pot, you would be able to pour out the very last drop in the pot, which is known as the "golden" drop in Japan.

The unglazed finish blends smoothly with tea, and lets you enjoy also the natural and exquisite matte texture of the clay.

Composition: 100% Ceramic/clay
Size: 14 x 11 x 8 cm
Volume: 225 ml
Place of origin: handcrafted in Tokoname, Japan

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
