Tetsubin – Cast Iron Teapot

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!
