Wazuqu Collection
Product code: CSTHF-26
Add to my notebook
400 ml

With more than four centuries of experience at their craft, the Kikuchi Hojudo foundry is a true leader in Wazuqu steel (a Japanese steel of very high quality).

They inspire many others with their traditional yet innovative style. Although working in old artisanal fashion, they create elegant pieces with a true sense of aesthetic, combining rustic material and forms with delicate and refined function. 

The enameled inside prevents rusting while allowing for any type of tea to be brewed. The large steeping basket offers great infusions even when the teapot is half full. A few more details we enjoy: Wazuqu steel is mostly made of recycled materials and small scale production requires half the energy typical industrial foundries use.

Unbreakable, this Japanese cast iron teapot is a great investment for all tea enthusiasts. 

Diameter of the opening: 5.25 cm

Height: 14.5 cm

Fairtrade

Dong Ding Mr Chang

Over the years, wulongs from Dong Ding Mountain have made quite a name for themselves. Grown in high-altitude, shorter daylight and greater temperature variations concentrate the aromatic oils in the slow budding leaves. They are well known amongst tea enthusiasts for their creamy texture and buttery taste.

Dejiang Long Zhu

Coming straight from a new garden project perched at 1,200 meters above sea level in eastern Guizhou, this tea harvested from 5-year-old seedlings of the Fuding Da Bai cultivar was grown without chemicals, as evidenced by the results of our laboratory tests in Shanghai.
