Tetsubin refers to the Japanese iron tea pot which first appeared in the 17th century and was used in Japanese tea ceremonies. Adopted as a symbolic revolt against the formality of the Chanoyu tea ceremony favored by the ruling class, the Tetsubin became a common fixture in Japanese households. Tea lovers prefer iron teapots, as water that is boiled in iron is said to have a better taste.
