This is a genuine NAMBU direct flame Tetsubin. This cast iron kettle is suitable for boiling water over a direct flame or electric stove.
Original Tetsubin's are a rarity outside of Japan.
It is said that water boiled in an iron kettle is mild and tasty, and the water quality is said to get better and better with repeated use of the kettle. The inside of Nambu ironware is burned over a charcoal fire for about an hour to oxidize and coat its surface, which then prevents rust.

The NAMBU Tetsubin is a direct flame Japanese cast iron teapot that can be used to boil water over direct flame or electric stovetop.
Unlike its cast-iron clones, this Tetsubin does not contain an enamel coating on the inside.
Instead, a naked iron kettle mineralizes and softens the water you boil in it, which makes for a noticeably richer, sweeter brew with less bitterness, greater depth, and smoother character.
The NAMBU Tetsubin is a genuine handmade kettle forged in the Morioka Tohoku region in Northern Japan. This unique kettle is adorned with a "Cherry Blossom" motif making it uniquely beautiful.
With the correct care, this authentic Japanese cast-iron kettle will last many generations of family tea lovers to come.
