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.

For those interested in this item, here are a few things to keep in mind based on my experience with it over the past 4 years. First, when I received it the enamel coating near the top of the pot was flaking off. You'll need to use a wet cloth and hand wash the interior of the pot to remove any flakes when you first get it. After a few uses the loose enamel should be gone.
The mouth of the pot isn't coated, so it will develop a patina from the tea. Unless you only run water through it, the mouth won't actually rust, so don't confuse the color change with normal rust. The tea will cause the iron to patina, which is a protective form of rust.
The filter will eventually develop a patina as well, so don't be alarmed when it start to turn brown after about 6 months of regular use. The color change is normal and is actually a good thing. The only complaint I have with the entire set is that the filter isn't fine enough to disallow some types of teas from slipping through it. Lipton loose leaf and Twinings English Breakfast are two recent examples of loose leaf tea that can slip through the mesh.
The cast iron holds temperature for a long time. Make sure to fill it with hot water to warm up the pot before pouring your boiling water into it for brewing. If you don't warm up the pot first, then the pot will absorb the heat from your boiling water and your tea won't brew correctly.
Despite what the instruction card says and the answers on Amazon say, you can safely put this on your stove and boil water directly. The one thing to watch out for when doing this is that the handle will get hot, which is why I feel the instructions tell you to not put the pot directly over heat. I personally only used this on the stove a few times, and for the past 3 years instead use an electric kettle that has a temperature setting, so I can adjust the water temperature based on the tea I want to have.
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.
It heats up great, the look is stunning and it's a great piece to add to any tea lovers collection.
The downside for me was that the little piece, it shows in the photos that the pot is sitting under, i think they call that the 'trivet'. DIDN'T come with the set. So pay attention to that and make sure everything is there.
Another major this is, yes, it's just a pot, not a kettle, you can't place it on the stove and boil water in it. DONT TRY.
The little cups are cute, and beautifully made. I think this is a great set.
But don't try to pick up the cups right away after brewing the tea in the pot and pouring it into them! You'll burn your fingers.
Other than that its a really nice little set.
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.
