This Jinshu teapot is ideal for Gyokuro.
When adding the tea leaves, they naturally fall to evenly spread and cover the surface of the teapot’s bed.
The 75ml capacity is perfect. I usually use 5g of leaves to 25 ml of water at 40C to begin. When the water starts to peer out from the tea leaves it is the right amount.
Pouring feels natural. The thumb rests effortlessly on the lid and clearly seeing the syrup like final drops of the tea only builds anticipation.
