Cast iron teapots were created in ancient China. They were then adopted and further developed on by the Japanese into practical as well as decorative handicraft items. They symbolize the everlasting strength and unity of the world. Through special chemical treatments, impurities are removed from the cast iron during the production process. A coating of misty black enamel is then applied to help prevent the development of rust. As water is boiled, trace amounts of iron in the water from the teapot provides an iron supplement that contributes to human health.
(*Small pots should only be used to serve tea, They should not be used to boil water directly.)

Instructions for use:
1) before using, boil a pot of water and pour it out to prepare the pot for use.
2) After each use, make sure that the entire pot is clean and dry to prevent the development of rust. It's recommended that tea should not be kept in the pot overnight. Not dishwasher safe.
3) In the unlikely event of rust, the pot can still be used. After cleaning the rusted area with a soft brush, boil used tea tags or tea leaves. The tannic acid from the tea will naturally react with the iron, producing a black seal, covering the rusted area. This will also prevent the reoccurrence of rust. The rust from the pot is non-toxic, so it will be safe to use.
4) Store in a cool, dry place. It can also be put on display to evoke moods of ancient China.
