Picture yourself transported back a thousand years ago, during the Song Dynasty in Henan, China. It was during this time that the art of Ru Yao pottery emerged, giving birth to the exquisite technique behind our beloved Ru Yao Porcelain Side Handle Kyusu Teapot.
This teapot is more than just a beautiful vessel; it is a living testament to the mastery and creativity of the ancient craftsmen. The secret to the unique luster of the Ru Yao porcelain lies in the iron used during the crafting process. This iron infusion gives the porcelain a shining and glimmering effect that is truly captivating. Imagine how the teapot's surface shines and shimmers, adding a touch of elegance to your tea experience.
But here's where the magic truly happens: during the firing process, a network of fine "cracks" appears in the glaze. Don't worry, these delicate cracks are not defects but intentional design elements that contribute to the teapot's unique charm. As you brew tea in this vessel, a remarkable transformation takes place. With each brewing session, these cracks gradually absorb the essence of the tea, becoming seasoned and beautifully darkened over time. It's as if the teapot itself is a canvas, capturing the story of every tea brewed within its embrace.
The Ru Yao Porcelain Side Handle Kyusu Teapot is a testament to the symbiotic relationship between teaware and the tea experience. It is more than just a functional tool. It's a vessel that pours it into your cup, inviting you to savor the tea experience in a way that transcends the ordinary.
When you hold the Ru Yao Porcelain Kyusu Teapot, let your imagination soar. Allow its glimmering surface and seasoned cracks to transport you to a world where tea was revered as a treasured art form. Share this teapot with your loved ones, and together, experience the beauty and depth that tea can bring to our lives.
With the Ru Yao Porcelain Kyusu Teapot, you don't just brew tea; you cultivate an immersive tea experience that merges the past and the present. Let each pour be a tribute to the rich heritage of tea, and let every sip carry the essence of centuries-old craftsmanship.
Embrace the tea aesthetic, my friend, and embark on a journey that transcends time and enriches your love for tea. Cheers to the timeless allure of Ru Yao porcelain and the treasured moments it brings to our tea-filled lives!

As soon as I received this teapot it became my favorite. I feel a bit ashamed for neglecting my other pots but it's just too beautiful not to use it all the time. I recommend using it for lighter teas: like green, white, lightly-oxidized oolongs.
Photos don't do justice to this teapot! Initially, I was a bit hesitant to purchase it because it's only 220ml, and I was looking for something a bit bigger. But when I received it I fell in love with it instantaneously and just can't stop brewing all kinds of teas in it. Sometimes I even feel a bit guilty for neglecting my other teapots 😂 😂 😂 This baby is gorgeous and very pleasant to use! AND (surprisingly) it filters smaller particles quite well!
