Iwachu Cast Iron Teapot - Tsuki in Brown

£90.00

This product is unavailable

Made from cast iron at the renowned Iwachu casting works in Japan, this teapot is an artistic object for everyday use. The smooth lines on the surface of this teapot bring to mind the raked sand of Japanese Zen gardens. Hand-finished in brown. The addition of a removable stainless steel basket (supplied free with this teapot) means that the tea can be brewed for the optimal length of time and then removed from the teapot, so that the perfectly brewed tea remains warm without over-extracting and getting bitter.

For over a hundred years Iwachu have been making tetsubin (iron tea pots) in the city of Morioka in Iwate prefecture. They are one of the most well known and respected manufacturers of Nanbu ironware, and are renowned for making tetsubin of superior quality and beauty. A guidebook is supplied with this teapot, which shows the manufacturing process, as well as instructions for its care and usage. Please note that the lacquered finish of this product is designed to fade and patinate over time in an attractive way. Please do not use detergents, grease or salt on this product, and do not rub the product to clean it, as we cannot guarantee the finish if you do these things.
