This Kyusu is designed for premium quality teas, because the flat and wide shape allows the leaves a larger surface area to open horizontally, ensuring that the leaves graze against each other less, thus releasing less catechin and more of the tea's sweetness and character. Tokoname ware (Tokoname yaki in Japanese) is a form of ceramic pottery that is produced in the area around the city of Tokoname in Aichi prefecture. This traditional craft comes from one of the Six Ancient Kilns of Japan
