The traditional technique of pot making for famous tea ceremonies is combined with a new design to fit a modern lifestyle.
A cast iron teapot with a porcelain lid. This pairing is a classic combination in Japanese tea-making implements, or chadogu.
Chushin Kobo offers this modern incarnation under the name "New Rikyu style.”
There are 10 designs of the lid, five kinds are large - dragonfly, dragon, goldfish, wave and cloud, and five kinds are small - pine needles, bamboo grass, plum, cherry blossoms and maple.
You can choose according to the season and your desire.
The difference in materials offers a fresh esthetic take in this rare design.
The outside of the teapot revives the traditional Japanese sunahada textured surface, while the inside consists of corrosion-resistant porcelain. For ease of use, there is also a stainless steel tea strainer provided.
Casting iron pots are also known for keeping tea warm for a long time.
