Tetsubin (or "tetsu kyusu"), the Japanese cast-iron kettle, is an integral part of Cha No Yu – Japanese tea-drinking tradition. The history of Tetsubin starts in the 16th century and its popularity quickly grew. It was used to brew sencha – a less formal tea than the ceremonial matcha. Made of cast iron, tetsubin posses great heat-retaining ability and makes it easy to enjoy tea in the company of friends or family. 

Glazed with enamel on the inside and accompanied with a tea-strainer, tetsubin is perfect for brewing tea and is easy to clean. But be careful not to put this kettle on a stove as the excessive heat will damage the enamel coating.
