This little tea pot (700ml) is no exception. Superbly crafted and beautifully presented, the Hario Chacha Kyusu Maru tea pot is the perfect way to enjoy tea.
And it is not just about looking good – this teapot actually delivers the best cup of tea! And the reason is because of the stainless steel tea leaf infuser. As we already know here at Tea Party Girl, there is a science behind delivering the best cup of tea. And with this Hario teapot, the secret can now be revealed!
Let the tea leaves dance
That’s right, the tea leaves need to dance, and to get the very best flavours, and aromas and the smoothest blend of tea, the tea leaves need to mingle and unfurl and gently release. This is the where the hidden art of the tea master, is combined with the skill of the Hario glass makers come together. And when these two fine arts come together, they provide the perfect tool for tea lovers.
The skill of the tea master
When the tea master dries, heats and ferments the raw tea leaves, the skill is to lock in the unique tea flavours. Whether it be the rarest of white teas, the most delicate green tea, or a gunpowder green or even a powerful black tea, the secret is in the way the tea master “cooks” the tea leaves, by heating and rolling the leaves. Each batch of tea leaves is treated individually by the master until it reaches its optimum point of fermentation, ripeness and preservation. That dried tea is then packaged and stored until it reaches your kitchen.
The secret of the Hario Chacha Kyusu Maru tea pot
If you care how you drink your tea, if you are discerning about your choice of white, green or black, and if you love the ritual surrounding your daily cup of tea, then you need to know this secret. The secret to a perfect cup of tea is the Hario Chacha Kyusu Maru tea pot. Simply select your finest tea, and add a careful measure into the stainless steel infuser, and add hot water. Please take note of the correct water temperature for your choice of tea, as this is important for the steeping process. Too hot will make the tea bitter, and not hot enough will not release the full flavour from the leaves. Get that right – and you have discovered the secret.

Nurture each and every tea leaf
The Hario Chacha Kyusu Maru tea pot unfurls each and every leaf of tea. According to the skill of the tea master, this action infuses the individual flavours from each of those leaves into the tea. This Hario teapot comes with a large stainless steel infuser so that the tea leaves are not crammed together. Each and every tea leaf should be allowed to drift, float, roll and waft. Why not set your tea leaves free? Let them unfurl and reach their full potential. Why hide the inner tea leaves from achieving the best they can be? Let them come out, let them be free to mingle and jingle with the rest. And with the Hario Chacha Kyusu Maru tea pot – you can watch the whole process unfold.
This beautiful clear glass tea pot is a pleasure to use.
As each tea leaf expands, unfurls, spreads its wings and expands to it fullest potential, you can see the wonderful release of color into the water, and smell the superb aroma of fresh tea.
The very best tea leaves deserve the very best steeping
Steeping should be fun! Steeping was made to be enjoyed. When your tea leaves have a good steeping, you can almost see the flavours and goodness being released from each leaf. With the Hario Chacha Kyusu Maru tea pot, you can choose when your tea has reached its optimal flavour and color.
