Tea is perhaps one of the most famous consumed beverages enjoyed by billions around the world every day. So many of us have our favourite mug or cup, but what about a teapot? We're big fans of the humble teapot, so we decided to take a look into the history of the iconic cast iron variety.

Origins on the Cast Iron Teapot

We know that tea originated in China, then spread to Japan, Korea, India, and later to other parts, including Europe and America. The cast iron teapot is said to originate from Japan. It was called 'Tetsubin' and was an over-coals kettle with spout, handle and lid. The teapot-like vessels were ideal for large-leaf teas, such as Sencha, introduced to Japan by China. Of course, today, you can find just about any shape, colour, theme or style of teapot made from a plethora of traditional and modern materials. However, as much as we love porcelain and glass, we have a particular soft spot for the cast-iron teapot. Not only do they look like relics from thousands of years ago, but they are efficient and long-lasting. And when serving tea from a cast iron teapot, we get a sense of ceremony, making tea drinking all the more enjoyable.

Benefits of a Cast Iron Teapot 

Cast iron is incredibly durable and can last many generations. Virtually smash proof, a cast iron teapot is also designed to keep the tea at optimum temperature because the material conducts heat beautifully. Enamelled on the inside to prevent rust, cast iron teapots are easy to clean and maintain. Of course, they are not dishwasher or microwave safe, but the removable stainless-steel mesh tea strainer makes our cast iron teapots easy to use, clean and ideal for all loose-leaf teas. 

We have a fantastic selection of cast iron teapots ranging in sizes and styles. Read on to find out more and find our entire cast iron collection here.
