Description:
These Tokoname tea pots come in two different colors (red/orange and charcoal). These pots come with its own stainless steel mesh strainer built inside to prevent loose tea leaves from pouring out. Tokoname clay is high in iron content and after firing produces a red-orange color known as shudei.

There may be slight variation. The use of the fine clay unique to the Tokoname area results in a very refined appearance, and allows for many unusual and intricate designs to be carved into the tea pot.
