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. Made in China. 18oz (0.5L). Not intended for stove top use.
