SAPPORO CAST IRON TEAPOT

£65.95

Cast iron teapots were originally created in China. They were then adopted and further developed by the Japanese into practical as well as decorative handicraft items. In these eastern countries, they symbolise the everlasting strength and unity of the world.

Through special chemical treatments, impurities are removed from the cast iron during the production preparation. A coating of enamel is then applied to help prevent the development of rust. As water is boiled, trace amounts of iron in the water from the teapot provides an iron supplement that contributes to our health.

Made according to the exacting specifications of a Japanese Tea Master, these teapots are constructed of Premium Cast Iron and come with a matching trivet and stainless steel strainer.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

  1. Before using, boil water in a kettle and pour it in the pot and then empty.
  2. After each use, make sure the pot is entirely cleaned and dried to prevent the development of rust. We recommend that tea should not be kept in the pot overnight.
  3. In the unlikely event of rust, the pot can still be used. After cleaning the rusted area with a soft brush, boil used teabags or tea leaves. The tannic acid from the tea will naturally react with the iron producing a seal covering the rusted area. This will prevent the reoccurrence of rust. The rust from the pot is non-toxic and safe to use.
  4. Store in a cool dry place.
