Tetsubin cast iron teaware care

After each use of your cast iron enamel teaware make sure that the pot and cups are clean and dry to prevent the formation of rust.

Do not let water or tea sit in the teaware as chemicals from minerals in the water and tea may eventually erode the enamel coating.

Do not scour or scrub the enamel to remove tea stains. A swish of lemon juice and rub with a soft cloth will ease the stain out.

In the unlikely event of rust, the pot can still be used. After cleaning the rusted area with a soft brush, boil used teabags or tea leaves. The tannic acid from the tea will react naturally with the iron producing a coating over the rusted area. This will also prevent the recurrence of rust.

Store your pot, thoroughly dried, in a dry place or put it on display.
