CAST IRON TEA POTS
Tea drinkers who brew in cast iron tea pots get a boost of iron, minerals, and nutrients that transfer from the pot to the brew. That's not the only reason we love cast iron tea pots though...
Cast iron tea pots are timelessly traditional and will last your entire life because of their durability. These are unique compared to other teapots because they can go on the stove top, and they do an extra good job of keeping your tea nice and toasty thanks to the thick insulation. Cast iron tea pots are also handy companions on camping trips, because they can be used to heat water on the fire!
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR CAST IRON TEA POT:
- After each use, allow teapot to cool completely before cleaning.
- Do not use soaps or detergents.
- Avoid contact with salt and oils.
- In the unlikely event of rust, the pot can still be used. Rust from the teapot is non-toxic and many Japanese tea connoisseurs actually prefer the taste of tea from a rusted iron teapot! If rust bothers you, clean the rusted area with a soft brush, then fill the pot with used tea leaves and boiling water. Allow to sit for 20 minutes, discard and rinse. Tannic acid in the tea reacts with the rust and forms a natural seal, helping to prevent the reoccurrence of rust.
