Hōhin (宝瓶) is a type of teapot without a handle. It is best suited for brewing delicate, low-temperature green teas such as sencha and gyokuro. It's compact size enables you to brew with intention, and savour one serving at a time. 

This particular hōhin is also referred to as a shibori-dashi kyūsu (絞り出し急須) because grooves carved in the spout allow you to squeeze out (shibori-dashi) the "golden drop", a.k.a the most flavourful drop of tea. 

The matte black glaze has a unique pattern that is different for every piece. This simple, modern design is great for any tea lover's collection.
