Product Description

A lovely example of the traditional cast-iron teapots known in Japan as tetsubin, this pot with its delicate, hand-cast, raised design in highlighted in black is not only prized as a collectible, but also brews 20 ounces of tea perfectly. Its interior is glazed in enamel, so it won't rust or corrode; nor will its stainless-steel infuser. To make soothing, full-flavored tea, simply spoon loose tea leaves into the infuser, pour on simmering water, and allow to steep for three to five minutes. The heavy cast-iron construction retains heat so well, it ensures second cups will still be hot. A GREAT GIFT IDEA JAPANESE CAST IRON TEA POT SET. This Cast Iron tea pot set is in a dark red with elegant bamboo pattern. The set includes: 1 Red Tea Kettle (5.25" Dia. 3"H), 21oz 2 Matching Red Tea Cups (3"Dia. 2"H) 1 Removable Stainless Steel Infusing Basket "Tesubin" Teapot Cast Iron teapots were first created in ancient China. They were later adopted and refined by the Japanese into Tetsubin: Graceful, elegant vessels for brewing and serving tea. Made of specially purified cast iron, they are symbolic of strength and unity. A coating of black enamel is applied to the inner surfaces to help prevent the development of rust. A removable stainless steel infusing basket is supplied for ease of preparation,. As with all "tetsubin" (cast iron teapots) this will brew a marvelous pot of tea and keep it hot for quite some time.

After reading all the reviews and so many reviews on various teapot sets, I ordered this one. I received it yesterday, two day free shipping with Amazon prime ! Can't beat the price and the craftmanship. It arrived in perfect condition, well packaged. First of all, for those of you wondering if it is made in Japan, it IS !!! It is made by Rikyu, a big brand in Japan which specializes in green tea. I sent a photo of the bottom and of the tag to a friend who lives in Japan (as I can't read Japanese or Chinese and he confirmed that it was made in Japan :)
At first I was disappointed in the color. This set is BROWN, not red. I will post a photo of it later on. I definitely wanted a red one ! Too bad ! Despite the color I went ahead and did a few tests. I compared it to my Iwashu brand Cast iron teapot purchased from Teavana. It is comparable in quality and craftmanship ! It is enameled and the coating is perfect. It contains 20 or 21 oz, only if you fill it to the top ! It is very small :( you can make 2 mugs of tea out of it. Thus if you are two, you won't have a refill and will need to infuse tea, unless you use the lovely tea cups it comes with. These tea cups are of the same bamboo design (very pretty) and are very cute, but too small for me.
I have been debating about which size to get ! I read it is best to have a smaller pot since with bigger ones, one tends to put more tea and it gets bitter. This can easily be prevented if you measure your tea and don't fill the infuser with tea leaves.mThe infuser is removable so that once your tea is infused it will stay warm but not get bitter. It is the exact same infuser insert as the one I have in my Teavana teapot.
The other test I ran was the pouring test. It does not drip ! The lid though is different from my Iwashu cast iron teapot.

This teapot is really beautiful but it's only big enough for about 2 cups of tea. Also, it is cast iron so you have to be careful not to chip or scratch it because it can rust.

Heat water in a kettle, put green tea into pot, pour nearly boiling water into pot. The heat is absorbed by the cast iron to make the water just the right temperature for green tea. Don't put this on the stove..... that's not what it is for. You wouldn't put a bone china tea pot on the stove would you?

The title kinds of says it all. I have a loose green tea that I got from the local Chinese market which I use. It makes about 6-8 cups of tea, so it really isn't that small. The cast iron also help keeps the tea warm for a while, which is nice since I like drinking it slowly.

What do you mean you can't brew tea with this thing? Of course you can. It can sit on an oven burner and heat up, and the handle stays cool. It doesn't whistle, so you have to keep an eye on it, but I brew tea in it two or three times a day. True, it is a one or two cup pot, but adding water each time, I have found, burns very few calories.

I purchased this set for my mother for Christmas, and she loved it. It is extremely high quality, and very heavy. I would recommend this to any tea lover who likes oriental decor - considering purchasing one for myself soon!

Great way to make tea. I bought this for my wife. At the time she did drink coffee. So she made tea and it makes it very well. Keeps it hot for about 30 to 45 minutes.
