The Sawa Teapot is an O.G. Umami Mart product. We've carried this light blue porcelain teapot since we opened our doors back in 2012. Needless to say, it has a lot of sentimental value for us. But beyond our personal nostalgia, we love its look. Designed by Yasuki Sakamoto, the Sawa Teapot marries traditional Japanese aesthetics with modern functionality. And we're not alone in admiring it – it won the 2009 Good Design Award! What's so great about the design is it allows you to pour using single handedly. Most tea pots need a second hand to hold down the lid while you pour, but the raised knob on the lid of the Sawa Teapot can be held down with just one finger of the hand holding onto the pot's handle. 

We recommend hand washing the Sawa Teapot.
