Yakijime teapot with brass string
Brass string teapot. Even left-handed people can use this shape. Regardless of Japanese or Western style, it fits perfectly into the current dining table.
The main body of the teapot is made using a method called yakishime, in which the teapot is fired without the use of glaze. It does not have the smooth texture of glaze, but has the hardness of porcelain and the fine texture of clay. When struck, it produces a metallic sound, similar to porcelain. The soil is slightly reddish, and the surface is uneven.
By using it, the luster and depth of color will increase. It's fun to have a deep flavor even with tea stains. You can use it as you grow.
This teapot is Originally started by Totsuchiya, it is now produced by Nankei Pottery, a kiln that mainly makes teapots. Banko-yaki from Yokkaichi City, Mie Prefecture, is popular for making teapots that are lightly and hard baked using unique highly viscous clay.
Banko-yaki belongs to "Stoneware" when it is classified finely among pottery because of its material and manufacturing method. Please think between pottery and porcelain. Fired at a high temperature of 1200 to 1300 degrees, it becomes hard like porcelain and loses water absorption and porosity. On the other hand, the difference from pottery is that it does not absorb water.
Because it does not absorb water, it does not easily retain the scent of tea leaves, so you can use it even if you change the tea leaves. Nice place for everyday use. In addition, since the iron-rich soil is not glazed, The fine unevenness on the surface moderates the astringency of the tea, making it mellow and delicious.
The tea strainer is called a joint tea strainer and is made of the same ceramic material as the main teapot, with fine holes. Each hole is hand-drilled by a craftsman. A stainless steel tea strainer may feel metallic, but with a shared tea strainer, you can enjoy the taste of the tea leaves themselves. The hemispherical shape has fine holes, so tea leaves do not get clogged and can be poured smoothly.
