Help with teapot
I am shopping for a tea kettle and pot as I do not have one yet. I am interested in the cast iron versions. My question is, can I brew water in these and then steep and serve? Is it an all purpose pot, or do I also need a tea kettle to brew the water? Your help appreciated.
The tetsubin pots – the small ones in colors with designs on them specifically say to NOT use them to boil water, they are used just like a regular teapot, for brewing and serving. I think it is because they are enameled inside and maybe the two finishes would expand/contract differently, causing them to crack or brak? The regular ole American cast iron pots/kettles. are fine for boiling on the stove.
