Jacob Bodilly Kyusu Teapot

Regular price £155.99
Stunning handcrafted Kyusu Teapot from Jacob Bodilly. Crated with the utmost care around the ancient themes for teaware that originate from Japanese tea culture.

200ml (7oz) capacity, perfectly filling two Jacob Bodilly Tea Bowls or one Jacob Bodilly Mug.

Jacob Bodilly began studying and making tea-ware as an apprentice at the Leach pottery in St Ives, Cornwall. Over the years Jacob has developed a unique body of tea-ware that responds to the practice of drinking specialist teas from Asia.

The designs produced for Rare Tea Company are individually hand produced in small batches at Jacob's pottery studio in rural Devon. He blends raw materials by hand and follows traditional techniques. He uses no unnatural pigmentation as this can affect the taste of delicate teas. The glazes he uses are developed to work harmoniously with a broad range of specialist teas. The pottery work is made from stoneware clay and fired to 1300‹šC in a gas fuelled kiln.

Stoneware is dishwasher safe, but it is advisable to wash carefully by hand and without strong detergents that may leave residue that may later affect the tea. The glazes are handmade and so over time take on some tea staining which adds character called "ageing". Ageing is considered a desirable effect and illustrates that the pottery and tea are subtly interacting through the brewing process.

Overall it should be illustrated that the work is made in natural way, to best serve the delicacy of tea.

Includes a built in gate to hold back the loose tea leaves - it will filter out everything but finer cut loose leaf teas (such as Speedy, Earl Grey & Lost Malawi).  To guarantee no finer leaves ending up in your cup, we have our Rare Tea Overcup Strainer.
