  • Full Description

    Immediately recognisable by their elaborate relief designs, the traditional Tetsubin cast iron teapot was originally heated over a charcoal fire and formed the centrepiece for the Japanese tea ceremony. Today's Tetsubin teapots are a unique fusion of modern technology and ancient technique: crafted from the traditional Wazuqu cast iron used for centuries in Japanese swords, each pot is lined with baked enamel for efficient heat distribution and includes a removable stainless steel infuser.
