Mino-yaki earthenware is specialty pottery produced in the Mino Region (around current Toki City) of Gifu prefecture which began in the 7th century. Mino-yaki continues to adapt to modern lifestyles while preserving its history and tradition. One of the signature characteristics of Mino-yaki earthenware is its diversity. Mino-yaki does not adhere to a single form, as it has over 15 registered types of traditional handicraft in Japan.
Simple and ergonomic, this YUI Teapot is meant to amplify relaxation during teatime. With soft lines and a fine matte texture, every part of this teapot was designed with intention by expert craftsmen in Gifu, Japan. YUI has little embellishment, however, it is exemplary of Nature Ave's commitment to creating products that combine beauty and utility. Its side handle allows the drinker to lift the pot and pour with ease. Its spout delicately tapers from its round body and releases a steady, yet gentle stream of tea. Equipped with a stainless steel tea strainer insert, leaves can steep and be taken out of YUI leaving minimal residue for a pure drink.
YUI sports a matte glaze in a solid Sumi (charcoal) or Asagi (teal) color speckled with minute differences in tone across the pot. This quality provides each piece with its own unique character—a trait seen across many types of Mino-ware regardless of style.
This teapot is best enjoyed with matching YUI Tea Cups (sold separately).
