Fujiso Banko Ware Black Tea Pot

Fujiso Banko Ware Black Tea Pot

Regular Price:

$51.74

This pot for black tea has a very modern design and, at the same time, it respects the centuries old tradition of Fujisō Banko earthenware. The pot is taller, thus allowing for the black tea leaves to “jump” up and down in the hot water in order to slowly release their flavor and taste. The inside is coated with a special transparent glaze that prevents the leaves from sticking to the pot; the glaze also add to the beauty of the pot, as the fine vein-like cracks barely visible in the beginning become more intense over time and create an intricate pattern of elegant lines.


The outside of the pot has the distinctive brown reddish tinge that is characteristic for Fujisō ceramic and that makes the pot a beautiful object in itself. The earth color and the powerful flavor of the leaves create a very special atmosphere when serving tea from this pot. 


The part of the rim near the spout has more than one hundred small holes, all carefully made by hand. The holes hold back even the smallest leaves in the pot while allowing for the tea to be poured easily. Also, the beautiful curved handle at the back has a small flat spot at the top, where you can place your finger when holding the pot, thus getting a better grip even when the pot is full an heavy.
Fujiso Bankoware Ceramics

 

 

Fujisō is famous for making Banko earthenware, especially tea pots and tea cups. Their products are known and appreciated all over Japan, as it is said that tea prepared and served in Fujisō ware keeps its strong flavour and taste intact (this is, in fact, one of the most important aspects that distinguishes Fujisō from other craftsmen in Japan).

The company was established in its modern form in 1907, but it boasts a long tradition that goes back for more than two hundred years, to the Edo period. It is located in the city of Yokkaichi in Mie prefecture, close to the beautiful Ise Bay, in an area rich in resources such as clay, water, and wood. The company is now managed by the fourth generation of the Fujii family.
