Tetsubin Iron Teapot
Traditionally used in Japan since the 1500's, the Tetsubin (鉄瓶) cast iron teapot is sturdy and indispensable when making green teas (especially Sencha) as it is unparallelled at keeping tea at the perfect temperature. Enamel-lined interior. 10 ounce capacity, use for steeping but not for boiling.
Tips & Info
Care of your cast iron teapot or teacup: after every use, please allow teapot to cool, then rinse and gently hand-clean pot with warm water only - dishsoaps and detergents will cause the finish to oxidize. Wipe with a dry cloth immediately, inside and out, then turn pot upright to dry completely before replacing lid. When using, we recommend a trivet underneath the teapot to ensure tabletops and table linens are protected.
Do not use in microwave or dishwasher; teapots are only for steeping tea leaves and should never be used to heat water on stovetops or other heat sources.
Any rust that forms over time may be removed with a gentle brush; please note that rust is natural and nontoxic and the teapot may be used while rusty.
