The BergHOFF 1.16 qt. Cast Iron Teapot - White has the look of aged handmade pottery but treats you to all of the benefits of a traditional cast iron teapot. Due to its heat-retentive properties, cast iron is able to improve brewing and promote a more robust flavor bouquet from loose leaves. The metal also helps to hold tea at the perfect hot temperature for longer than other materials. Lined with enamel, the teapot is resistant to corrosion and durable enough to be used for daily teatimes. The design includes a fine mesh infuser basket constructed out of high quality 18/10 stainless steel.
