A pattern that is reminiscent of a Shogun warrior's helmet decorates the two dimensional surface of this bold black cast iron teapot. The striking design of forged iron lines and raised domes works in either formal or rustic settings and can be used with both western and eastern tableware. Known as the "testubin" teapot in Japan and China, these teapots are much revered for their distinctive styles and their ability to brew what is thought by connoisseurs to be the "perfect" pot of tea.
The tetsubin has always been considered a status symbol in far eastern cultures and it is easy to understand why. It is too lovely to be stored away and should be kept on display when not in use, as is common in the Far East.
These beautiful teapots are not meant to be placed on top of the stove to boil water, but instead should be used for the purpose of brewing tea. The interior of the pot holds a removable, fitted, stainless steel infuser in which to place your favorite tea leaves. The teapot is made of cast iron and the thick walls of the pot helps to retain the heat of the water to keep your tea at the perfect temperature for a longer time. Once you are finished drinking your pot of tea, it is recommended to clean the pot by hand. Made in China. Gift box and instructions are included.
