Product Description

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.

I like this teapot, and the price is good. I'm not such a fan of the cups, but the price on this set beats any other place I could find for the pot alone.

One caveat: this pot does not have a 20 oz. capacity. Almost 16 oz. can fit, but you can't brew with that much because it is basically overflowing. A reasonable estimate of the actual capacity is about 13 oz. It's a good size for one person, but if you are thinking of brewing 20 oz for two, you will be disappointed. I am familiar with the other saucer-style pots available here. They aren't 20 oz either - probably around 16 oz, practically speaking, and also seem like a one-person pot to me. If you want tea for two, buy one that claims it has 30 to 40 oz capacity.

What I received was a cheap chinese knockoff in a generic box with no sticker, labels or the normal Kafuh usage tag. Since the only Amazon Fulfillment was JapanBargain that's who I used.

Amazon was great setting up the return. Too bad it's a knockoff and not the real thing. Shady sellers out there.

If you're a confirmed tea drinker, then get this type of teapot. It's the best. There are many sizes out there, although I prefer the little one for my solo drinking adventures. My only complaint with Japanese iron teapots is that sometimes they rust around the handle rings...although I find that the ochre colored dust adds to their overall charm!

This really is a crazy low price for an awesome little tea set! I've seen these pots (without the matching cups and trivet) sell for WAY more in the shops!!

The seller shipped the item FAST, and it arrived packaged well with no damage.

Like the description says, it comes with the teapot/lid, trivet, stainless filter basket thingy, and two teacups. They're all cast iron, and all a matching set. It's REALLY nice...and I'll second the vote that this thing could last a lifetime...and more.

The pot holds about 14 ounces of tea...enough to make 4+ teacups (with the included cups). Careful with that first cup...that cast iron gets hot!

Like with any cast iron teapot, you can fill it up first with hot water to heat up the pot, then pour it out and make your tea like normal. This helps to keep your fresh brewed pot of tea hotter longer.

And like the others mentioned, this is a tea POT...not a tea kettle...don't try to boil water in it...it's just for brewing tea! Get yourself a nice electric water kettle...mine is the one of the most useful pieces of gear in my kitchen.

The only problem, is that now I want to buy more of these teapots from this seller, since they're so nice and the seller makes them affordable to collect! Buy it!!

I love cast iron teapots. They keep the tea warm for hours and the tea never gets bitter. This was a beautiful teapot and it's great that it comes with cups, but the tea basket inside rusted after only two brews. I exchange the tea basket, but again it rusted. I'm trying a third exchange and this time with a completely new teapot, but if anyone wants to avoid this unfortunate hassle I'd recommend different brand of teapots.

Received the cast iron teapot set which consisted of the small, two person teapot, a trivet, and two cast iron cups. It's a pleaseure to make tea using this set. Boil water in another teakettle, brew the tea in the iron tea pot, pour out nirvana. Well made, great looking. Only drawback is the fact that the cups get very hot, too hot to hold. Recommend small pot holders or Starbucks -like paper insulators to hold the cups. Otherwise, an excellent deal as I have seen other pots-only for hundreds of dollars. This set gives you everything you need at a fraction of the price without sacrificing quality.

I am not sure if the Chinese are genius or it is just luck. If I put boiling water in my iron kettle it cools to around 175 (perfect for green tea)
If I put boiling water in my iron kettle let it sit for 1 min, dump it, then put the rest of the boiling water in it steeps at 195 (perfect for black tea).
For the $$$ you are not going to find a better pot.

Like i said. 3 stars is ok. This pot is a lot smaller than i thought it was but that's okay. Two full coffee mugs and it's empty. The cups are rather small too. As my first set i thought it was pretty awesome. The cups it comes with are really small. I ended up just using my coffee cup eventually. The down falls to this set are this.
Using the little cups, you find yourself pouring a lot more cups instead of 1 or 2 big ones. The problem with that is that the lid just slides right off so you have to start trying to pour while holding the lid nob down with your finger. That doesn't always work.
Next i found that no matter how much i washed the cups, i ended up always tasting the cast iron on my lips and to say the least, it got old fast.
So, like i said, cool but not that practical.
