TIME & STYLE Kaoru Stone Tea Pot

TIME & STYLE Kaoru Stone Tea Pot


Kaoru teapot is made with a particular type of soil rich with iron particles. The pot is fired in the kiln without a glaze. This way the iron particles in the clay react with the tannin of the tea to create a lovely mellow taste. 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 a metal strainer. With its sharp edges and matte black surface, our ceramic Kaoru teapot offers a different aestethic from our porcelain range.

The handle is specially designed with a small tip coming out to rest your finger on for steadiness when pouring tea.
