Cast Iron Tea Set (Bamboo) Moss Green w/ 2 cups Trivet Included. Strainer included.
Tetsubin or cast iron pots were first used throughout Japan as kettles to boil water over an open fire and were usually hung above a hearth to also provide heat and humidity in cold weather.
* In the mid 19th Century, as infused teas such as Sencha became popular, brewing and serving the tea to friends and family in a Tetsubin also became very popular.
*Designs and shapes have since evolved from simple and plain—to detailed and ornate works of art as we know them today.
