10 ounce Cast Iron Kettle / Cast Iron Teapot With Strainer
Enjoy hot tea that has been freshly steeped when brewed in a pot designed in the high quality Japanese style. The Cast Iron Teapot from Primula distributes heat evenly for superior steeping and better tasting extracted tea flavor.
Cast iron absorbs heat evenly, ensuring that the water steadily becomes hot. With the tea leaves floating in the water, this gradual, even heating infuses the greatest amount of tea flavor into the water. Not only do you get more of the flavor, but the nutrients that provide the health benefits of green tea and black tea are also infused into the water thanks to the even heating.
Not only does the cast iron teapot heat up the tea better, but they retain warmth much more effectively than ceramic or clay. A good cast iron teapot can keep your tea nice and hot for up to an hour, while a ceramic or clay tea pot will cool down much more quickly.
The final reason to use a cast iron teapot: it's much more durable than ceramic or clay. While ceramic and clay shatter easily, cast iron is strong and will not break. You'll find that a cast iron teapot, when properly cared for, will last you a lifetime!

Unlike most teapots, cast iron teapots can be set directly on your stove or even an open flame. Some guidelines to follow:
- It’s best to have some liquid in the teapot before setting it on the heat source.
- When using a gas stove or setting on an open flame, keep the flames low so they do not hit the sides of the teapot.
- Fill the teapot about two thirds full of water so that when it boils it does not bubble over.
- Add the tea leaves in after the water is heated
- If you use the infuser basket that comes with these teapots, put it in after heating the water. The rim will get very hot during steeping, so take care when lifting it out.
