Japanese style Daisy Purple Tetsubin teapot kettle made of cast iron with stainless infuser. Holds 0.6 Litres.
Cast iron teapots were initially created in ancient china. They were then adopted and developed by the Japanese in the 17 century into practical as well as decorative handicraft items sold under the name of Tetsubin. The cast iron tea pots symbolize the everlasting strength and unity of the world and the more intricate are frequently given as gifts and kept as status symbols. Through special treatments, impurities are removed from the cast iron all the way through the production process. A coating of misty black enamel is then applied to help prevent the formation of rust. As a result of their strength of construction these pots can be utilized as kettles (to boil water) or as tea pots (to brew tea). You may wish to consider buying one of our Cast Iron Trivets to match your teapot. Also available as a Light Blue Teapot.
