Designed by Joyce Chen, this distinctive teapot makes a great gift for a friend born in a Chinese zodiacal year of the rabbit. Part of the Special Edition Tetsubin collection, the Year of the Rabbit teapot has lovely quiet energy, distinctive design, and excellent brewing properties. Crafted with a low, seamless shape and a high, arced handle, it features raised, stylized imagery of a jumping rabbit. The dark yellow color is both earthy and warm, creating a handsome contrast with the charcoal-colored handle.

Crafted from cast iron, the Year of the Rabbit teapot offers superior heat retention to maximize flavor during brewing and keep tea piping hot. To prevent the metal from reacting with the tea, the interior is coated with porcelain enamel and the infuser is stainless steel. Ideal for one or two tea drinkers, the piece holds 16 ounces and should be washed by hand. --Emily Bedard


Product Description

This 16 oz Year of the Rabbit Japanese Tetsubin (Cast Iron Teapot) is part of the Chinese Zodiac Series which is an exclusive Joyce Chen collection. Japanese artists create a new commemorative Tetsubin to celebrate and greet each Chinese New Year. The Chinese believe the animal ruling the year in which a person is born has a profound influence on personality, saying, "This is the animal that hides in your heart." These Japanese cast iron Tetsubin with their exquisite relief designs are admired and collected not only for their quiet delicacy but also for their ability to brew a perfect cup of tea. Each hand cast, cast iron teapot comes with a stainless steel mesh infuser and is finished with porcelain enamel on the interior. Safe for the stove top but beautiful enough to use as a decor piece this Dark Yellow Year of the Rabbit Tetsubin features a stylized rabbit in relief. The cast iron keeps brewed tea extremely hot yet the interior porcelain enamel keeps the metal from interacting with the tea or imparting a metallic taste. Whether beginning or ending the day you'll find it easy to make your favorite beverage in one of these lovely and useful teapots. Joyce Chen's slogan "Eastern Cookware for the Western Kitchen," reflects her focus on providing high-quality, versatile tools and products that have Asian flair, but can be used in a western kitchen. Joyce Chen opened her first restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1958. The restaurant flourished, and in 1973 a larger Cambridge restaurant was opened. Chen also began writing Chinese cookbooks and in the 1970s began hosting a cooking show on public television. She found that the selection and quality of Chinese cookware in America didn't live up to her high standards¿ so she developed her own. Today, Joyce Chen Products come from all over the Pacific Rim to bring the best of Asia to you.
