  • Nabu Tekki is a cast iron product that is made in the Iwate prefecture of Japan. Ironwork has started out approximately 1000 years ago and the production was dominated by cauldrons, however as the tea ceremony grew in popularity, the iron kettle is said to have been created by making these cauldrons smaller and adding a spout and a handle. Nowadays the iron workers of this region produce around 35 different products - not only iron kettles but also wind chimes, bottle openers, ashtrays, ornaments, wall hangings and vases. Nanbu ironware was designated a traditional craft by the Japanese government in 1975. This cast iron tea pot is loved by the Japanese green tea lovers because it is said to give a mellow taste to the tea by its iron material.
