If you're in the market for a new teapot but aren't sure what material makes the best pot, try cast iron. Cast iron is often used for teapots because it is durable and affordable. Cast iron is widely available and because of its cast-construction, it is easy to fashion into a variety of shapes, like a pot, tea cups, or other tea accessories.

Enamel Coated Cast Iron Teapots

If you're worried about iron or rust in your tea, you needn't be. Cast iron teapots are coated on the inside to prevent rusting and to ensure a smooth, healthy cup of tea every time. Coating the inside with enamel will keep your teapot looking better longer and will also ensure that each cup is fresh and good for you.

Cast iron makes an ideal teapot because of its appearance as well. Cast iron is easily decorated to make an attractive, unique pot. It can be painted or etched with designs in a wide variety of styles. It can also be made in several distinct and attractive colors. Classic black is always popular, or you can liven it up with a fierce red or calming green. There are different sizes and shapes to be considered too.

If the price of a new cast iron teapot is holding you back, there are ways to find beautiful teapots for less than you'll pay at your local tea shop. There is a small handful of high quality, gourmet tea sites on the Internet. These sites specialize in selling hard-to-find gourmet teas at bargain prices. Online prices can be significantly lower than what you'll find at your neighborhood store, and shipping is usually quick and convenient.
