The tea culture began with the introduction of tea from China in the Nara and early Heian periods.

Japanese teapots are usually of the "side handle type" with the handle on the right side of the spout, while Chinese and European tea utensils are usually of the "back handle type" with the handle on the opposite side of the spout.

The "side handle type" Japanese teapot that is popular in Japan originated from "kipsh" in Fujian or "kifs" in Fujian, which was used to heat sake and hot water during the Song Dynasty in China. In addition to boiling water, it was also used for making porridge, infusing medicines, and many other purposes.

In the Edo period, teapots were introduced to Japan from China, and a Zen monk named Baisaiou started the tea ceremony using teapots to make tea. It is said that this spread throughout the country, and the culture of making tea in a side handle type kyusu became firmly established.

In the Edo period, sencha, which is boiled tea, was the mainstream method of drinking tea, and it is said that this method may have taken root.
