Tokoname, Aichi Prefecture, is famous as a kyusu-producing area. Since the vitrified surface is unglazed, it stores tea's aroma, and the more it is used, the more the teas will produce pleasant aromas.
Its heat-retaining ability is higher than that of porcelain kyusu and tea incrustations are hardly recognizable. The skin improves with use, turning more lustrous.
We also recommend the yuzamashi, which would match with the kyusu.
I am very pleased to advise you that the products I ordered met my expectations and I am delighted with each one. My shopping experience with Shokunin was overall very positive and I look forward to another opportunity to shop with you again.
