Teapot Tokoname Isshin (Green w/ Brown - 570 mL)
A traditional teapot from the Tokoname region in Japan. Tokoname-ware is famous for its natural reddish appearance, which comes from the fine-grained clay containing a high percentage of iron. Some bitterness / astringency from tannin in tea becomes milder with the iron in this teapot. Ashes of different kinds of wood are used to create variations in color such as the unique brown and green colors of this teapot.
