Banko ware has a 300 years old history. In the Genbun era, 1736-1740, Edo period, a merchant called Nunami Rozan got captivated by the Way of Tea, built a kiln in the town of Asahi, Mie prefecture, and started making his own pottery. What once started as a hobby of a merchant turned to be a world-renowned earthenware.

Japanese Banko clay teapots are constructed from iron-rich clay, known for excellent heat retention. The teapot is covered in a white glaze made from plant ashes.
Great for Japanese Greens, but works perfectly with Oolongs and Blacks. We use one of ours for fresh sheng Puers as well. Nicely keeps the floral and fresh greener notes.
