Iwachu iron teapots are manufactured 100 years ago in Morioka, Japan. Iwachu articles are internationally recognized, today they are still manufactured in a large part of their craft process.
The traditional teapots, cast iron, Iwachu, due to its manufacturing process and safety controls, do not give off metals. They are imitated, but the results, the design, and the quality presented by the originals are not achieved.
All carry basket-filter for infusion.
Some are decorated with a relief called "arare", which means hail. It is a classic decorative theme of Japanese teapots.
