The origin of Japanese cast iron teapots dates back to the 11th-12th centuries. These traditional Japanese teapots have a finely enameled interior to avoid the risk of oxidation. Japanese artisans have chosen cast iron for making traditional Japanese teapots because this material is a good conductor and helps to accumulate and conserve heat for a long time. They keep the tea warm for one to two hours.
Imported from China in the twelfth century, Japanese tea is mainly associated with a fine green tea powder called Matcha tea which is one of the favorite drinks of the Japanese.
