Stemming from the centuries-old know-how of the Wazuqu foundry, the Aoki teapot, with its graphic and modern design, has an intense midnight blue color. This cast ironteapot perfectly illustrates the ambivalence of Japanese culture, which is both modern and traditional. The Aoki teapot has a delicately anti-drip spout for precise tea pouring.
Easy to use, the teapots from the WAZUQU foundry are on average 25% lighter than traditional Japanese cast iron teapots, thanks to more than 400 years of perfecting Japanese craftsmanship.

To preserve the quality and beauty of your teapot, follow the steps below:
1 - After using the teapot, rinse it out with hot water, avoiding the use of detergents.
