Simple black or white kyusu (side-handled teapot)

These teapots are small and simply designed. They’re stoneware and come in either black or white. Each has a metal screen filter basket that fits inside. Experiments have demonstrated that this teapot does just fine with sencha or gyokuro, or any other Japanese green tea in the filter.

They’re not fancy or elegant, but for their low price they’re quite functional. They’d work well for Japanese teas at your desk in an office.
