A traditional Japanese stoneware pot from Shigaraki: Holds 110 ml

The Tanuki Teapot is a houhin, a Japanese teapot which it is perfect for brewing sensitive, bigger-leaved, high-grade teas. The glazing on the inside of the stoneware pot embodies a luster that gleams like mother-of-pearl underneath every infusion. When serving the tea, the leaves are retained by the closed lid while the tea escapes through the intended grooves leading to the spout.

Each piece is made by hand and thus gets its unique appearance, so the delivered product may differ from the photo.

Hand-thrown and fired in Shigaraki, one of the six original kilns of Japan, the Tanuki Teapot is a visible representation of the region’s ceramic identity. Ceramics from that area are often partially glazed or unglazed, high fired stoneware made of locally collected clay, lending the objects a rustic character and thus implying the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, the beauty of imperfection.
