Iwachu Cast Iron Teapot with Dragonfly Pattern in Green

£122.00

This Japanese cast iron teapot is quite simply stunning. Exquisitely made by the craftsmen at the Iwachu casting works in Japan, the design suggests a dragonfly hovering over the ripples of a pond. The teapot is hand painted in 'Spring Grass' green. 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.

In Japan the dragonfly is a symbol of courage, strength and happiness, and often appears in Japanese art and literature. 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. Note: please read the supplied care instructions before using your teapot.
