Cast-iron tetsubin tea kettle

The tetsubin is an iconic item and is normally made from cast-iron like the one featured here. Not only does the cast-iron provide health benefits, but it also distributes the heat evenly, which does wonders for enhancing the flavor extraction during heating.

With your purchase, you will get a traditional Japanese cast-iron tea kettle and a stainless steel infuser. The capacity of the tetsubin is 650ml and weighs 2.5 pounds.

The benefits of cast-iron: Cast-iron offers incredible strength and durability. Also, the material releases iron into the water, which makes the water taste softer and sweeter. Another benefit is the actual iron, which absorbs chlorine from the drinking water.

Maintenance: As soon as you get your teapot first boil, 5 to 10 grams of tea with it for 10 minutes. The tea leaves will react with the iron from the pot to coat the interior with a layer of tannin, which eliminates the iron odor and prevents the kettle from rusting. Pour the tea water out and repeat the process three more times or until the water is clear. Also, don’t forget to empty the kettle after every use and do not pour over 70% capacity water into the pot to prevent spilling boiling water. And do not clean the inside of the tetsubin with cleaning detergents or brushes.

Warranty: The tetsubin has been made in Japan by highly skilled craftsmen. If you are experiencing any problems with the product, contact the manufacturer, and they will quickly solve any issues with 100% satisfaction.

Bamboo matcha tea whisk

This traditional Japanese tea whisk has been carefully crafted from durable golden bamboo and is the perfect addition for any quality matcha tea set. Included with the purchase are a 4-inch long bamboo whisk, a 4.5-inch long bamboo spoon, and a beautiful clear storage tube.

Before first use: It’s essential to soak the bamboo tines (brush part) in warm water while whisking it back and forth for a minute or two. It softens the tines, which will help prevent them from breaking apart when using.

After each use: Rinse the tines in cold water, shake off the water, and dry it with a soft towel. Place the whisk face up as this will help it to dry.
