Japanese Southern Gongfu Cast Iron Teapot: A Blend of Tradition and Health

Originating in ancient China, the Japanese Southern Gongfu Cast Iron Teapot has found its home in Japan since the Meiji period. Meticulously crafted by skilled artisans, each teapot undergoes a 20-day process from conception to completion, resulting in slight variations in coloration. The intricate carvings inscribed upon the body, such as swastika patterns, evoke an ancient charm and a sense of Zen.

To prepare your teapot, it is recommended to first boil Pu’er tea for 5-6 minutes, followed by multiple boilings of mineral or tap water until the result runs clear. If Pu’er tea is unavailable, you may directly boil tap or mineral water for 2-3 times, approximately 15-20 minutes each, achieving the same clarifying effect.

Beyond aesthetics, the teapot’s spouted design ensures optimal water flow, a hallmark of quality. Extended use of the Japanese Southern Gongfu Cast Iron Teapot gradually releases iron elements, readily absorbed by the human body. This ferrous enrichment supports iron absorption, effectively combating anemia and providing health benefits such as:

  • Adjusted central nervous system
  • Smoothing effect
  • Balanced endocrine system

The presence of iron elements also softens water, enhancing its sweetness and smoothness. Combined with tea, it elevates the tea experience, adding a touch of freshness and tranquility to your daily routine.
