Cast Iron Japanese Water Kettle B
Nanbu Testsubin Utsushi
Masterful reproduction of a Ryubundo style kettle. This cast iron water kettle is not enameled and meant only for the boiling of water. Iron helps soften the taste of water while providing even heating and an excellent conductor. Perfect for tea that needs plenty of heat, especially puerh. Can be placed directly over fire. The amazing detailed multi part copper lid knob and handle do not get as hot as solid iron ones.
Made in Japan
No box available, do not leave water sitting in an unused kettle. Always allow to dry with the lid off. Before first time use, boil water three or four times.
