This classic Japanese teapot is made from sturdy iron and has enamel coating on the interior to prevent rusting. It also comes with a removable stainless tea filter. The body is glazed in black color and cast with a traditional crane design. Japanese cast ironware heats evenly and retains heat well and is praised worldwide for their beauty, strength, and superb quality. One thing to remember is that cast iron teapots should not be used on stovetops to heat water.
Historically during the mid 19th century as infused tea drinking became more popular in Japan, “tetsubin” or cast iron teapot evolved from being a kitchen item to being a status symbol used to serve tea. Many nobles cherish their teapots as treasures and are kept in the family for generations.
