What are the characteristics of Tokoname ware?
A unique color, vermilion!
The biggest feature of Tokoname ware is the unique vermilion color unique to Tokoname ware, which is famous for its kyusu and teacups.
This is because iron oxide called Benigara, which is mixed with the soil used in Tokoname ware pottery, develops a reddish color.
This soil was further improved, and the best vermilion mud soil for Kyusu was completed.
This vermilion mud, which has a unique vermilion color unique to Tokoname ware, also has excellent characteristics.
The unique vermilion vermilion mud that is unique to Tokoname ware has the property of not absorbing water.
Therefore, this vermilion mud has excellent water resistance and has the optimum characteristics for Kyusu.
The vermilion color that symbolizes Tokoname ware comes out by making it without glaze, but recently, by daring to glaze it, Tokoname ware of various colors is also made.
・ Molding technique
The typical molding techniques of Tokoname ware can be roughly divided into four molding techniques.
Potter’s wheel molding is a method of molding using an electric potter’s wheel.
Stamp molding is a method of molding using a plaster mold.
Hand twist molding is a method of molding clay shaped like a string, which is about the size of a finger, using a potter’s wheel.
Corico making is a method of stacking clay shaped like a string about the size of an arm and molding it from both the inside and outside using a spatula or hand.
・ Tokoname ware classic “teapot”
Kyusu, which is a staple of Tokoname ware with a long history, is one of the famous Tokoname ware. Tokoname ware Kyusu has been manufactured since the end of the Edo period, so it has a long history of over 150 years.

◎ An important point of delicious Japanese green tea!
・ Be sure to boil the water completely once.
・ The most important point to enjoy Japanese green tea is to use good water.
・ It is best to use good water that has been passed through a water purifier, but tap water with a strong scent of karuki should be left overnight and used as a supernatant, or once it has been completely boiled, it should be boiled for another 5 minutes. If you boil it above, you can remove the odor such as tap water.
However, since water is used every day, we recommend using a water purifier for both deliciousness and safety.
・ Another point is that when you put Japanese green tea, do not put hot water directly into the teapot from the pot, but let’s try to cool the hot water with a tea cup or a hot water cooler before putting it in the teapot. ..
If you use a large amount of tea leaves and pour out the first cup to the last drop, the flavor will remain up to 2 cups and 3 cups.
[Standard amount of Japanese green tea (for 2 to 3 people)]
