Product Description

Cast iron teapots were originally 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 often given as gifts and kept as status symbols. Through special treatments, impurities are removed from the cast iron during the production process. A coating of misty black enamel is then applied to help prevent the formation of rust. Due to their strength of construction these pots may be used as kettles (to boil water) or as tea pots (to brew tea). Most sizes come with a stainless steel mesh infuser for brewing leaf tea. If using the pot to boil water this infuser should be removed before doing so. Before using to brew tea, boil a pot of water and pour it out to prepare the pot for use. After each use, make sure that the pot is clean and dry to prevent the formation of rust. Tea should not be left in the pot overnight. In the unlikely event of rust, the pot can still be used. After cleaning the area with a soft brush, boil used teabags or tealeaves. The tannic acid from the tea will react naturally with the iron producing a coating over the area. Store your pot in a cool, dry place or put it on display. These cast iron teapots and kettles have a flat base suitable for Range style Cookers. You may want to consider buying one of our Cast Iron Trivets to match your teapot.
