Kyûsu, Woodruff, 陶葉
An ideal Kyûsu for the introduction to the cozy green tea drinking in traditional form.
This Kyûsu is equipped with a circumferential metal sieve (帯網急須, Obi-ami), which also holds back fine tea leaves (e.g. as with Fukamushi, Mecha) and gives off a clear green tea.
The carved leaves remind me of woodruff, which also reflects the rich green color.
