Cast Iron Tea Pots
Cast Iron Teapots
were created in Ancient China. So for those looking for antique cast iron tea pots, the chinese had the earliest of these tea pots.
In the 1600's Japan adopted the cast iron pots and they were issued under the name Tetsubin.
The Japanese cast tea pots were often intricate in design and style and were a status symbol for their owner.
These tea pots symbolize the everlasting strength and unity of the world.
They are unique in that originally, the tea pots were used to boil water for the tea, like a tea kettle, but they were also used for brewing tea. Cast Iron retains heat, so your tea will remain hot much longer in an iron tea pot than say porcelain tea pots or even the clay tea pots. The tea actually puts a coating over the cast iron over time and protects your tea pot from rust. Adagio Teas has a very nice selection of tea pots for you to consider.
Cast Iron is like a once in a lifetime purchase when it comes to teapots, so choose a style that you think you can live with for years to come. (These are so durable.)
They are literally bullet broof as well, so your investment into a cast ironware tea pot is one that will serve you well for many years to come.
