Tetsubin is a word for Japanese cast iron teapots. Tetsubin distributes the heat evenly inside the pot to better extract the flavours and benefits of the tea thanks to the solid cast iron with enameled interior.

Making a tetsubin at Iwachu usually consists of 64~68 steps with majority of the process still being done by hand. Quality is strictly maintained by a master craftsman known as a "Kamashi". It requires at least 15 years to become a full-fledged craftsman and 30~40 years to become a "kamashi".
