Potter
Shoryu was born in 1945 at Tokoname. He studied under Master Hokuryu until 1978. He got pottery awards in 1988, 1996, 1997, 2001, 2002, and more.

Design
To get this beautiful pattern the pot is turned on a wheel. The potter uses a sharp tool to make tiny indentations.

Why choose a Tokoname tea pot?
Tokoname tea pots have excellent functions.
1. The angle for pouring is a very effective design. Tea does not drip from the spout.

2. The handle is designed for easy handling.

3. The lid shape is adjusted to perfectly match the pot after firing. The excellent match provides a good condition for steaming tea leaves.

4. Impurities adsorb with the fine particle clay. It works as kind of filter and enhances the primary taste of tea.

5. The clay has a lot of iron oxide. The oxide reacts with tannin. Tannin is a kind of bitter taste in tea. So if tannin and iron oxide react with each other, the tea taste changes to mild.

Tokoname tea pots can make good tea. Thatfs the reason Japanese green tea shops recommend Tokoname tea pots. You can enjoy real green tea taste and fragrance.
