Scandinavian design meets traditional Japanese intention. Beautifully round, elegant in appearance and available in two soft, restful colors.
As with traditional cast iron, this teapot is durable and retains heat well. This teapot is also made of a special type of cast iron that can be placed directly on the stovetop, acting as both kettle and teapot.
It will keep tea at a desirable drinking temperature for up to an hour or more. This teapot comes with a steeping basket, and must be hand washed.
Cast iron teapots were first invented sometime between the 17th and 18th centuries in Japan. Cast iron absorbs heat evenly, and it is thought that because of this tea steeped in a cast iron pot may have a slightly different, fuller flavor than tea brewed in another steeping device. Cast iron will also retain heat longer than glass or ceramic teapots. They are ideal for brewing high quality, orthodox grade teas, such as a first flush Sencha or high altitude oolong.
