Stunning premium grade artisan crafted red clay Tokoname yaki (常滑焼) Japanese teapot made in Aichi. The interior has a built-in mesh tea strainer - making this teapot suitable for deep steamed teas. The teapot features flying sakura petals in a lovely 'hanami' scenary, coupled with handcarved spiral textured details on classic dark red clay base. Tokoname teapots use a clay that contains high iron content - helping to balance the tannins in tea. Gift box included.
