Tokonamé: 1000 years of Japanese quality

Tokonamé is the oldest and most important of the six ancient pottery centers of Japan. In the archipelago, the city is synonymous with cha-ki – or tea utensils – and its production is the result of a long tradition of craftsmanship. Even today and despite increasing mechanization, teapots that combine several pieces are assembled by hand.


Before first use, remove the protective tip from the spout if present. Boil the teapot and it will be ready to use.
Traditionally, you do not wash an earthenware teapot with dishwashing liquid.
After use, throw away the tea leaves and wash the teapot with water. Remove the lid when you let it dry.
If tea leaves clog the filter, use a soft-bristled brush to remove them. Cleaning the ceramic filter with a hard object such as a toothpick may crack it.
If the stains left by tea tannins bother you, gently brush the affected area with baking soda mixed with water.

The surface of a Tokonamé teapot becomes shiny over time.
