Primula’s Japanese Hammered Cast Iron Teapot is a symbol of strength and beauty. This traditional black teapot is as exquisite as it is durable. Cast iron teapots are designed to deliver exceptional tasting tea every time. They distribute heat more evenly, therefore enhancing the flavor of the tea leaves during the brewing process. The cast iron design also traps the heat inside, keeping your tea hot for up to an hour. Primula’s teapot has a distinctive hobnail pattern on the outside, a tall looped fold-down handle, a removable lid and a short curved spout. Included is a loose tea mesh infuser that sits securely in the pot while the leaves are brewed. The interior of the teapot is fully enameled which makes for easy care and cleaning, and helps prevent rust and oxidation. This teapot holds 36 oz of your favorite hot tea.
