Uniquely Beautiful -Toyomasu Kazuo (From Singapore)

  (Message from Singapore) This teapot by Mr. Kazuo Toyomasu is uniquely beautiful. It is imbued with a dignified quietness yet playful with an inscribed abstraction of bamboo and pineapple. Upon receiving it, I brewed Bai hao yin zhen (a top grade white tea) and the tea is nuanced flavorful with mildly sweet notes. The pour is very smooth, the fit of the lid is excellent with an even and visible ridge, and the handle flows beautifully from top to bottom—facilitating the affordance of pouring stably.

Jinshu Flat Teapot Detail Report From US Customer (Ito Seiji Gokuhira Kyusu)

[JINSHU Flat White Oyster Shell Tokoname Kyusu Teapot] (Message from US) This is one of the best teapot I have in my limited collection. Everything about the functionality of Master Jinshu's flat kyusu is excellent. The teapot disperses heat evenly and feels comfortably warm to the touch when 75C-80C degrees water is poured in over the Chanoyu's Asatsuyu tea. The pour from this flat kyusu is remarkably smooth. The capacity of the kyusu is shallow allowing for the tea leaves to swim freely yielding a more robust and very smooth brew. I tested the pour of this kyusu with the lid...
