Japanese clay teapot with a side handle.

In Japan, green tea (sencha) is prepared in small clay teapots, so-called kyusu (side handle) or shiboridashi (no handle). They are simple and elegant. A fine strainer is fitted in the spout, which facilitates preparation of several infusions. Teapots of this type are made of green and red clay, according to original procedures without glaze, but with a very fine polish. Today these teapots, along with cups, are only manufactured in several traditional potteries in Japan. In addition to these traditional polished teapots, modern teaware also offers a number of lovely glazes, often embellished with tiny designs.
