Cast iron teaware is traditionally favored for elegant design, heartiness, and ability to retain heat for long periods of time - all attributes that enhance the tea experience. Each teapot is molded, painted and glazed by hand. It is then hand burnished to reveal nature-inspired details. Comes with stainless steel infuser to make steeping and removing leaves easy.

Nara, the ancient Japanese capital, marked the easternmost point along the infamous Silk Road trading routes. Tea was first introduced to Japan through the gates of this city- it was so rare that only priests and noblemen could delight in its elixir and elaborate rituals were created for its enjoyment. Tea left an indelible mark on Japanese society and has endured as a simple pleasure. The hobnail style of our Nara cast iron teapot symbolizes strength, endurance, and longevity - all elements of great cities and fine traditions.
