Cast Iron Teapot Care Instructions
Proper care of a cast iron will afford you a lifetime of use. After each use, allow teapot to cool completely before cleaning. Rinse and gently clean pot, cover and infuse thoroughly with warm water only. Do not use soaps or detergents. Wipe the outside dry with a clean cloth while the pot is still warm. Invert the pot to air dry before replacing infuser and lid. Avoid contact with salt and oils.
If rust occurs, the pot can still be used. Rust from the teapot is non-toxic and perfectly safe. If rust bothers you, clean the rusted area with a soft brush, then fill the pot with used tea leaves and boiling water. Allow to sit for 20 minutes, discard and rinse. Tannic acid in the tea reacts with the rust and forms a natural seal, helping to prevent the re occurrence of rust.
Cast iron teapots are extremely durable and will last for generations. They have an excellent ability to retain heat. Made of specially purified cast iron, they are a symbol of strength and unity.
