Description

These porcelain pitchers are great for appraising the true color and clarity of tea. When in Tokyo back in 2016, I developed an interest in sake and learned that sake cups often have a swirl in the bottom so you can better judge the clarity of a sake. I thought this was a great idea and wanted something that would work for tea the same way. Well, I found these handmade pitchers and they are exactly what I was looking for! They hold around 100-110ml of hot tea liquor comfortably, so they are better suited to smaller teapots. I used one with a 100ml modern zhuni pot today and really enjoyed the way the liquor looked in a white pitcher. My glass pitchers are going to the back burner for a while!

This pitcher is also well suited to use as a yuzamushi (cooling vessel) for those who like to cool their water for tea with a series of pours. I use a cup and two pitchers and then pour into a cool vessel when brewing green tea (which gets me to 50-60C, according to the thermometer). This pitcher will drop temperature significantly due to its thickness, so it makes a nice alternative to the glass pitchers I use. While I do have some vintage Japanese yuzamushi, the larger volume of this pitcher is better suited to the larger vessels I often use for Chinese green tea.
