Red Japanese Water Cooler [Yuzamashi]
We are often asked 'how do we get the right water temperature for the perfect bowl of Japanese Tea?'. You can of course use a temperature controlled kettle but traditionally, in Japan, the Yuzamashi or Water Cooler is used. When brewing Sencha, Sencha Karigane, Sencha Fukamushi or Genmaicha simply pour boiling water into the Yuzamashi or Water Cooler and then pour water into your Kyusu teapot.
By using this simple and beautiful pot in this way you will get the water to the ideal temperature of 176F (80C). Brew for the appropriate time and then simply enjoy your tea!
Made in Japan.
