Hiratsubo Cast Iron Teapot
This exquisitely designed teapot was crafted based on the ancient Japanese tea ceremony teapots but updated with a modern twist. Although it makes a large 44oz (1.3L) of tea, the teapot was made to fit comfortably in two cupped palms, hence the name: hira means palm and tsubo means pot. The lovely recessed lid is an unusual detail found on Japanese teapots. Very limited production. Made in Japan. Hand wash only.
