This Hakuji Sekkai Hohin features a glazed white porcelain and allows the infusion color of the gyokuro to shine while brewing. Hohin translates as "treasure jar" or "magical jar” and is a traditional teapot designed to offer a deep appreciation of the umami flavor, rich mouthfeel, and lovely jade color of Japanese Gyokuro. The Hohin is designed without a handle, making it suitable for teas like Gyokuro that require a lower water temperature for infusion. The spout has a ceramic filter inside to strain most of the tealeaves. It is perfectly acceptable, however, to allow some of the finer Gyokuro tea leaf to flow through into the cup. This adds to the luscious body and rich mouthfeel of high-grade Gyokuro.
