(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.
