This glazed teapot is called 'Yokode no kyusu' which translates literally as 'side handle teapot' and this kind was used traditionally for serving green tea. The side handle derives from old times, when the host was sitting in front of the guest while pouring tea. This handle is very useful for quick and even distribution among several small cups without spillage. For non-Asian eyes this teapot might look somehow unorthodox at first, but its practical features are undeniable and persuasive.

The teapot is made of petrified sorts of clay. The peculiarity of this clay is that it is highly dispersed. The clay is of dark tone with light mineral speckles. The size of the particles allows air to go through, which permits to enrich tea with oxygen. It is recommended to use such teapot for brewing one type of tea, because the porous structure of the walls absorbs the ethereal oils of tea leaves and therefore retains the aroma of the infusion for a long time.
