[KYUSU: Japanese Tea Pot]
The word for a Japanese tea pot. The most common form is a yokode kyusu, in which a handle protrudes straight out of the side of the pot. Traditionally this makes it easy to pour for a guest sitting directly in front of you (as you would in a traditional Japanese tatami mat room), and in quick, intermittent bursts allowing the tea to mix inside the pot.

Tokoname Pottery: 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.

The Japanese tea ceremony is generally identified with chanoyu and its bowls of whipped, powdered green tea served in surroundings influenced by the tenets of Zen Buddhism. This is a study of the alternative tea tradition of sencha, at which gatherings steeped green leaf tea is prepared in an atmosphere indebted to the humanistic values of the Chinese sages and the materialistic culture of elite Chinese society during the Ming and Qing dynasties. This illustrated volume explores sencha's philosophy and arts from the 17th century to the end of the 20th century.
