This cast iron tea pot "Tetsubin" is a "hobnail" black finish holding 24 fl. oz. with a removable stainless steel infusing basket for ease of preparation.
Tea Kettle made of Cast Iron 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 FDA Food Grade coating of black enamel is applied to the inner surfaces to help prevent the development of rust and keep your tea fresh.
As with all Japanese style "tetsubin" (cast iron teapots) this will brew a marvelous pot of tea and keep it hot for quite some time.
