Founded over 100 years ago, the well-respected producer, Iwachu, has been handcrafting tetsubins (traditional iron teapot) using age-old iron casting techniques. The production process of making tetsubin usually consists of 64 to 68 steps. At Iwachu, most of this process is still done by hand and quality is strictly maintained and controlled by a master craftsman known as a kamashi. It requires at least 15 years to become a full-fledged craftsman, and 30-40 years to become a kamashi.
An exquisite addition to your collection, the enameled interior prevents rusting.
Please note: cast iron pots with enameled interiors are not recommended for stove top use, but simply as a teapot.
Dimensions: 6" x 5" / 34oz volume
