Tetsubin Iron Teapots and Accessories
Japanese iron kettles, ‘tetsubin’, were commonly used during the 18th and 19th centuries to heat water and provide heat and humidity in the home.
Japanese art greatly influenced the design of iron kettles during the 19th century - transforming these household items into precious works of art. Today, skilled Japanese craftsmen continue to expertly merge function with beauty and fine craftsmanship - taking 3 days to make one tetsubin teapot.
Each of our tetsubin are handcrafted in Japan as they were centuries ago with a durable modern enamel finished interior and include a stainless steel mesh strainer for brewing tea.
