These wonderful, pure cast iron teapots have been manufactured for centuries in an almost unchanged way. Today we cannot say whether these items have their origin in China or Japan. Cast iron teapots are very elaborate; almost designer items of the utmost quality. The material has many favourable characteristics; cast iron keeps hot for a very long time, a warmer is hardly necessary, although it naturally increases the visual effect.
The production has remained the same for centuries, and is very labour intensive. Get a taste of just how much craftsmanship goes into every teapot in our cast iron teapot production guide
