The Yuzamashi (hot-water cooler) is a tea-service accessory used to adjust the water temperature. If you often enjoy high-quality Japanese green tea, the Yuzamashi is an essential tool for your collection! Pour boiled water into the Yuzamashi, and then pour the water into the Kyusu. For a long time, Japanese have used the Yuzamashi to brew green tea of a pure and genuine taste, without bitterness.
The teapot was made in Tokoname city, which has a 900-year-long history and tradition of pottery-making and is well known throughout Japan. In Japan, there are six ancient kilns – Tokoname, Seto, Echizen, Shigaraki, Tanba, and Bizen – and Tokoname has the oldest and largest of them. Tea lovers believed that teas have a sweeter, mellower flavour when brewed in clay teapots. This fact, combined with high-quality craftsmanship and design, makes Tokoname teapots popular among Japanese green-tea lovers.
