Nambu ironware requires superior craftsmanship; there are 68 steps in making a standard kettle. It is said that it takes at least 15 years to become a decent ironware maker, and 40 years to become a master craftsman.  [read more 

Made of cast iron with an enamel interior to provide years of use and to prevent rust and oxidization.  Use to brew tea, not as a stove-top kettle. The kettles are used for bringing the water to temperature and are able to withstand direct heat, and the teapots are purely for brewing the tea in.  Teapot comes with a removable mesh strainer, which makes disposing of tea leaves easy.  

To assure the longevity of your cast iron teapot or tea kettle non kettle, please be sure to follow the basic guidelines. >> [read]
