Iron cans "鉄 瓶"Tetsubin /"铁 壶“Tiehu
The cast iron water jug has been a valuable tea utensil in East Asia since antiquity, because it has the advantage of low heat conduction, so the contents do not cool down as quickly. In the past, it was also seen as an advantage that the water is enriched with iron and can be absorbed by the body. Modern iron jugs, however, are glazed on the inside so that no more iron can get into the water.
There is also a belief in Japan that tea drinkers become addicted to the taste of tea if the water is heated with a cast iron jug. With us you will find beautiful iron jugs from China or Japan that we have carefully selected so that they can become a valuable addition to your tea collection.
