Haru Sakura 50 oz
Haru Sakura - Japanese Tetsubin Unlined Iron Kettle
50 ounce capacity
Iron black with a deep cocoa brown wash of color, this artisan handmade Tetsubin kettle from Japan is elegantly decorated with raised, highly detailed sakura (cherry blossoms), blossom buds and cherry leaves. This charcoal brown Tetsubin also has sakura ringing the large, generously sized lid which is topped with a prominent sakura bud. The rustic, textured handle is sturdy and very comfortable to use.
*Note - the handle does NOT fold down.*
Traditional Japanese Tetsubin water kettles, including our Haru Sakura, are unlined meaning they do not have porcelain enamel linings or strainer baskets. As you heat water or infuse tea, a natural coating will form to protect the interior of your cast iron water kettle. The interior has been initially tea seasoned and polished. It is important your Tetsubin is allowed to fully air dry after each use. The Haru Sakura is marked by the artist under the spout.
