Cast Iron Teapots, known as Tetsubin, originated in Asia – cast iron distributes heat more evenly and the water will stay hot for longer. Teapots made of cast iron will last a lifetime if cared for correctly. Plus, they look so attractive in a kitchen, they’re a work of art in themselves!
About Cast Iron Teapots
Cast iron teapots originated in China, from where they were taken up by the Japanese.
They have come to symbolise strength and unity.
They are often passed down the generations as treasured heirlooms.
Once impurities have been removed from the cast iron, the teapot is coated with black enamel to inhibit rust.
Cast iron teapots should not be used to boil water directly.
