The Toumei Kyusu was designed in partnership with Lucy Alter Design and Senchado Green Brewing. This unique tea pot is made from a BPA free polyester resin making it virtually unbreakable. The large removable brew basket allows your tea leaves plenty of room to open and release flavor, color and aroma. It is even suitable for deep steamed fukamushi style teas. A wonderful tool for traveling - the Toumei kyusu packs into your bag easily and will not break in luggage.
