Love the look of this cast iron Japanese Teapot. If you aren't a tea nerd, these are usually preferred for brewing as they distribute heat evenly compared to a traditional steel / ceramic pot.

Had a quick look around and this seems to be a great price, with delivery included

A beautifully Japanese inspired VonShef cast iron tea pot makes a wonderful addition to your tea time for any tea lover. Traditionally cast iron teapots are favoured for their elegant design and ability to evenly distribute heat throughout the pot, making your cup of tea even more full of flavour.

This tea pot comes with a mesh infuser insert comes so you can brew your favourite loose tea or use traditional tea bags when making your favourite brew!

Due to the strength of the cast iron construction this tea pot can also be used as a kettle to boil water. If you decide to use this tea pot as a kettle then make sure you remove the infuser first.

To ensure that you get the most out of this tea pot and have it for years to come, then it will need to be rinsed out with boiling water and cleaned and dried after each use.

Please note that that cup and saucer pictured are not included.

That's a really nice looking 'Kyusu', shame though if it rusts easily.
Just remember, if you're making Green Tea, make sure the water has cooled a while as the tea will go bitter if the water is used straight from a just boiled kettle.
If there's one thing I learnt from dating a Japanese girl for 3 years, it's "don't make the sencha (green tea) bitter" That emoji is her face not mine (kowaii)

Damn, I thought it was a custom speaker.
I'm a teaoholic so this is right up my street 😁
That is a good price. I've not seen it where you can put the infuser into the kettle before.
Pictures on Amazon shows that it rusts quite easily, shame as I was going to order one.

I find these teapots lose heat way too quickly, resulting in an invariably lukewarm cup of tea -even after rinsing it with boiling water as suggested.
Reminded me of Uncle Iroh.

I've got one. The lid started to rust a little when I left it closed and unwashed over night but it all came off using a metal sponge. Really enjoying it.
Wonder if it would stand up on a bbq

As someone who loves the ritual of loose tea brewing something like this attracts me, however those rusty photographs stop me from buying. Any first hand reviews from hotukdeals contributers?

Can I ask how much use did you have before rust set in?
I've never bought these cheap version cause o don't trust the making process... You'd get some strange residue that will make you sick...

Lots of paranoia.

I've never bought even the expensive ones...
Cold. No band 20 and not a xiaomi......

Cast iron will rust after one use if you leave it wet. Also rust forms much more quickly in warm conditions. Seems like the worse combination for tea. Shame as I like the look of it.

Agreed, I put mine on the hob for 30 sec to reheat albeit with the tea leaves removed, for a second or third cup.

Maybe the ritual of proper drying then, or leave it on top of a radiator for that dry heat.
The tempered glass ones are so much better

Any recommendations from where to buy good quality loose tea.
With a cast iron frying pan you can clean off the rust then give the inside a coating of oil. With a kettle you would not do that and I am not sure I would want a cup of tea from a rusty pot.
Aluminum is dangerous too, stainless steel or glass is the way to go.

Then you need a tealight teapot warmer. In fact, everyone needs a tealight teapot warmer.

Boyf has one that he dug out of the back of a cupboard (gifted by a neighbour) - they are great. Loose tea is much, much tastier than teabags It's the sort of thing you could easily find in a charity shop - when he first produced it we weren't sure what it was!.

Available in TK Max for £9.99. Also you need to ensure it has a smooth lining inside as some don’t so if you like ingesting raw cast iron and rust with your tea.

Is it made in Japan or...?? I can't seem to find it in the description.

eBay n Amazon have loads. Buy from amazon. There is a seller who will replace it if it breaks. Best way to be safe
This is one pot that really can't call the kettle black. Unless the kettle too is black. Then it could.
Just checked the reviews on Amazon but a comment under one of the "rusty" reviews says that they were designed to impart a little rust/iron flavour into the tea. Looking it up the first link on google is the.republicoftea.com/lib…ns/ which also 2nds this comment that "[some] connoisseurs actually prefer the taste of tea from a rusted iron teapot!". But also includes care instructions.

How to care (gist): Do not use soap/oils, simply clean with water and allow to fully dry. Fill with tea and allow to soak, this will produce a protective layer preventing further rust.

You still haven't. Infuser goes in the pot. Not the kettle.
I found it for 12.99 in tkmaxx so cold.
Great for leaving on the top of a wood burning stove for constant hot water if you have one

No it’s not meant for that and it’s only small and the intense heat would crack it.
