Hand crafted in Iwate prefecture, this 1.5l liter tetsubin is perfect for the stovetop or induction burner. Hand cast from 100% iron, utilizing this Kettle will soften and enhance water leading to more pronounced flavor and aroma when brewing Japanese tea.

Tetsubin are meant to heat the water. We recommend using electric or induction heat. If you use flame, please keep the flame low. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THE PIECE IS DRIED AFTER EACH USE BY POURING OUT THE WATER AND ALLOWING IT TO DRY QUICKLY OVER LOW HEAT.

Never scrub, wash, or touch the inside of the piece. Only water should come in contact with the inside. When you receive the piece, please boil and discard water around 10 times before using it. There is a natural urushi lacquer coating on the interior that may discolor the water at first - this is normal.
