RIKYU Cast Iron Tea PotTetsubin or Cast Iron Tea Pots were first used throughout Japan as kettles to boil water over an open fire and usually hung above a hearth to also provide heat and humidity in cold weather. This Japanese cast iron tea pot retains heat longer than ceramic pots.
In the mid-19th century as infused teas became popular, many began brewing and serving the tea to friends and family. This beautifully crafted Rikyu Cast Iron Tea Pot holds 32 fluid ounces and has a removable stainless steel tea strainer inside. It measures approximately 15" in diameter and is 4 inches in height. The inside is coated in a black enamel.
