Iwachu Cast Iron Tea Kettle

$ 265.00 USD

Bring a little warmth to your kitchen with this modern kettle, skillfully crafted with the traditional Japanese arare (hailstone) pattern. A tetsubin, or cast iron tea kettle, was once a status symbol of emperors and scholars. Today, tetsubins are important parts of the Japanese tea ceremony, and tetsubin craftsmen take at least 15 years to master the trade. Forged by hand in the workshops of Iwachu, this small style is perfect for an individual, well-steeped cup of your favorite tea.
