Designed to resemble the pottery from Ancient Greece and Rome, the BergHOFF .9 qt. Cast Iron Teapot - Green is classically chic and built to last out of enamel-lined cast iron. The metal has high heat retention properties to insulate tea and keep it hotter for longer while also assisting with the brew process to make your beverages more flavorful. An 18/10 fine mesh stainless steel infuser basket is included for loose leaves. Its tiny openings help to ensure that no debris escapes into your cup.
