Testubin, cast iron kettles, were originally used in the home to boil water. These early testubin generally were not ornately decorated. As infused tea drinking became more popular, testubin became highly decorative and uniquely shaped, evolving from a mere kitchen item into a status symbol. Considered by many to be the best way to brew tea, the cast iron evenly distributes heat to better extract the flavors and benefits of the tea.
Handmade in Japan of solid cast iron and fully enameled inside, this testubin comes with a stainless steel basket for your tea leaves and will keep tea hot for close to an hour.
