When given proper care a cast iron teapot will last you a lifetime!
Simple Steps to care for your teapot:
After each use, allow teapot to cool completely before cleaning. Rinse and gently clean pot. Do not use soaps or detergents.
Wipe the outside dry with a clean cloth while the pot is still warm. Invert the pot to air dry before replacing infuser and lid.
Avoid contact with salt and oils. Please use a trivet to protect table linens and surfaces.
Rust from the teapot is non-toxic and perfectly safe. In fact, 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. They have an excellent ability to retain heat. Made of specially purified cast iron, they are a symbol of strength and unity.
Please note, the iron teapot is not suitable for stovetop use.
