How to Care For Cast Iron Teapots
Cash iron teapots were created in ancient China. They were then adopted and further developed by the Japanese into practical, as well as decorative, handicraft items. They symbolize the everlasting strength and unity of the world.
Through special chemical treatments, impurities are removed from the cast iron during the production process. A coating of misty black enamel is then applied to help prevent the development of rust. As water is boiled, trace amounts of iron in the water from the teapot provides an iron supplement that contributes to human health. (Small pots should only be used to serve tea. They should not be used to boil water directly.)
