Product Details


Lead the tea ceremony with these traditional Tetsubin teapots by the Japanese cast iron teapot specialists Kikuchi Hojudo. Available in mottled grey, blue and green, each teapot has been handcrafted by skilled artisans from the Japanese city of Yamagata.
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.
In the 13th century, the Japanese tea ceremony often involved elaborately staged tea-tasting competitions with prizes for whoever guessed the best quality tea. Why not stage your own blind tasting to test your tea knowledge – can you tell an oolong from a pu-erh, a white tea from a green?
