Details

This type of teapot is known as a "Tetsubin" in Japan

Cast iron teapots originally crafted in the mid-17th century
This style was designed to accommodate the full leaf green teas
The “Tetsubin” became more popular in the 18th and 19th centuries
Featuring intricate and symbolic designs they became status symbols
In Japan it was believed this imparted a Zen-like quality of peace and inspiration for the tea drinking ritual
Traditionally favored cast iron teaware has a reputation for elegant design, heartiness, and ability to retain heat for long periods of time, all things that elevate the tea drinking experience and creates the most delightful flavor of all brewing methods.
The Tatera technique is used to create each teapot by 17 different craftsmen in which they mold, paint and glaze the teapot
It’s hand burnished which reveals nature-inspired details
Proper care will avoid chips, rust or breakage
