At a volume of about 5 ounces, this Black Kyusu is the perfect size for a solo tea session or for serving one or two guests. We sourced this teapot for its elegant design and high quality performance with an everyday price. The lid of this Kyusu forms an excellent seal with the body of the teapot, so that tea droplets will not drip down the front when pouring. The stainless steel mesh screen is fitted inside the spout to filter all kinds of Japanese teas, from the most tender gyokuro to the deep-steamed (and therefore small leaf particle) fukamushi sencha. This Kyusu is on the smaller side, so that even those with petite hands can learn the art of traditional one-handed Japanese tea brewing.

Material: Clay with Stainless Steel Mesh Filter
Height (with lid): approx. 3"
Length (with handle): approx. 4.5"

This is a cute teapot that works very well. As a previous review noted, the mesh inside does not leak and the pot pours well.

This is indeed a small pot, but it serves its purpose well.

I bought this teapot to brew Japanese green teas for one person and it works wonderfully. I have since started using it in place of my gaiwan for teas with more fines.

It's very small, holding about as much as a large gaiwan. The flow isn't amazing but it doesn't spill and is acceptable for the price. The stainless steel mesh also works well. There have not been any leaks from the seal when pouring.

Overall a very good teapot that fills a very specific niche. I'm not a huge fan of how it looks but it's hard to find an alternative at this size. If it looked a bit better or was priced slightly less I wouldn't hesitate to give it five stars.
