(Explanation of teapot for deep steamed green tea)
Deep steamed green tea is characterized by its fine leaf size. It is because leaves are steamed longer than the other types of tea. Owing to longer steaming time, the tea has thick and deep taste and rich aroma but if you use normal teapot, fine tea leaves may come out through the spout or sometimes clogging may occur at the filter. To prevent this point, stainless filter is set at the spout or whole inside of the tea pot for deep steamed green tea. Also we prepare high ranked ceramic tea pot. To the inner side of the tea pot, delicate work is done as a filter. So, it is more easy to use.
