This inspirational teawares company is spearheaded by founder Koji Inoue, who personally checks each and every Zero Japan teapot before the final firing stage! He does this to ensure colours are correct and the teapot's shape is flawless before ending up in your hands. Explore the range today!
Zero Japan's unique design elements
Handcrafted moulds & bisque firing
The moulds for every Zero Japan piece are handcrafted and go through a special second stage called 'bisque' firing. At this stage, pieces are heated to 800°C for six hours. This makes Zero Japan teapots extra durable even before the glazing process.
Ever bought a beautiful-looking teapot only for it to have an uneven pour or continuous dripping even after you're done using it? It all comes down to the spout, and you can wave goodbye to excess spillage and messy tables with a Zero Japan teapot! Whereas most other spouts are too large for the quantity of tea their teapot is holding, Koji Inoue and his team hand-craft every Zero Japan spout to ensure it pours perfectly every time.
Stainless steel lid
Koji Inoue designed the stainless steel lid twenty years ago after his mother broke the lid on her favourite teapot and needed a durable replacement! The lid on every Zero Japan teapot is made from food-safe 18/8 stainless steel that is also rust-resistant. Moreover, a special hinge not only ensures that teapot lids can be easily removed for cleaning but also stand up on their own when attached to a teapot!
