The porous surface of this cast iron kettle absorbs minerals and impurities. Boiling tap water in a cast iron kettle removes chalk from the water and magically makes it taste mild and delicious. It also not only improves the taste of cooking and of drinks like Japanese tea, coffee and English tea, but also supplements daily iron intake.
The Nanbu cast iron kettle ornamented with a splendid iron glazed Kyoto Ware / Kiyomizu Ware lid is an exclusive product of T. Nishikawa & Co., Inc., combining the two traditional arts of Japan in the playful spirit of Kyoto.
Please enjoy luxurious moments drinking tea in our tea set, delicately prepared using the mellow flavor of hot water boiled in the iron kettle.
The cast iron kettles on this page come with both an earthen lid and a cast iron lid.
