Cast Iron Tea Set (HobNail Design) Blue with 2 cups. Includes Strainer (also in Black)
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.
