Product Description

Product Description

This 22 oz Year of the Rooster Japanese Tetsubin (Cast Iron Teapot) is part of the Chinese Zodiac Series which is an exclusive Joyce Chen collection. Japanese artists create a new commemorative Tetsubin to celebrate and greet each Chinese New Year. The Chinese believe the animal ruling the year in which a person is born has a profound influence on personality, saying, "This is the animal that hides in your heart." These Japanese cast iron Tetsubin with their exquisite relief designs are admired and collected not only for their quiet delicacy but also for their ability to brew a perfect cup of tea. Each hand cast, cast iron teapot comes with a stainless steel mesh infuser and is finished with porcelain enamel on the interior. Safe for the stove top but beautiful enough to use as a decor piece this Red Year of the Rooster Tetsubin features stylized roosters in relief. The cast iron keeps brewed tea extremely hot yet the interior porcelain enamel keeps the metal from interacting with the tea or imparting a metallic taste. Whether beginning or ending the day you'll find it easy to make your favorite beverage in one of these lovely and useful teapots. Joyce Chen's slogan "Eastern Cookware for the Western Kitchen," reflects her focus on providing high-quality, versatile tools and products that have Asian flair, but can be used in a western kitchen. Joyce Chen opened her first restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1958. The restaurant flourished, and in 1973 a larger Cambridge restaurant was opened. Chen also began writing Chinese cookbooks and in the 1970s began hosting a cooking show on public television. She found that the selection and quality of Chinese cookware in America didn't live up to her high standards¿ so she developed her own. Today, Joyce Chen Products come from all over the Pacific Rim to bring the best of Asia to you.


Elegant in style and traditional in materials, the Year of the Rooster teapot from Joyce Chen's Tetsubin line celebrates people born in the Rooster years of the Chinese Zodiac. A great gift for tea-lovers and teapot collectors, the teapot features a low, smooth profile balanced by an arced handle and attractively curved spout. A bas-relief image of stylized roosters decorates the body for a look that is striking yet spare, and a rich red coloring completes the design.

Crafted from cast iron, the Year of the Rooster teapot offers superior heat retention to maximize flavor during brewing and keep tea piping hot. The interior is coated with porcelain enamel to prevent the metal from reacting with the tea, and the infuser is stainless steel. Safe on the stovetop, the piece holds 22 ounces and should be washed by hand. --Emily Bedard

Twenty Two ounce cast iron teapot is a medium sized teapot for brewing tea. The product quality is excellent, and the sheen of the red paint is beautiful.
I would have preferred, at this price, a more artistic design. The rooster is rather plain, and the design does not bring ones eye to go around or over the pot.

This teapot is small, but very attractive. Actually the only reason I kept it was because the colour and design suited my decor so well. However, other that aesthetics, I would not recommend it. Functionally, it is a disaster. It really only makes two cups of tea and the spout drips when tea is poured. The spout also creates an arc when poured so that if the cup isn't positioned just right, the tea will miss the cup. Quite frankly, tea is spilled every time I use it. It is really a decor item only.
