- Handmade Cast Iron Teapot
Tetsubin or cast iron pots were first used throughout Japan as kettle to boil water over an open fire. They were usually hung above a fireplace to also provide heat and humidity in cold weather.
In the mid-19th century, as infused teas, such as Sencha, became popular, brewing and serving tea to friends and family in a tetsubin also became very popular. Plain designs and shapes have since evolved to detailed orated works of art as we know them today.
