Why Tea Made in a Nanbu Tekki Kettle Tastes Better
The inner wall of the kettle has a thin layer of oxidized coating, and the iron begins to dissolve when hot water is put into it. Therefore, the water that is put into it has iron in it, which is said to be a good way to prevent anemia. People who find getting their daily dose of iron difficult can get it just by enjoying a cup of tea from this kettle, which uses ferrous iron. It’s also great at removing the chlorine used in tap water, making the water boiled in it taste clear and crisp.
Cape Jasmine and Sakura Make for a Delicate Design
Since ages past, iron kettles have often used the seeds of the cape jasmine flower on the handles of their lids. This traditional Japanese design is used on the Nanbu Tekki as well, and beautifully displays a sakura pattern and the kettle’s exterior. The cape jasmine is said to represent happiness and good fortune. This lovely Nanbu Tekki kettle is sure to bring a little bit of both to your life.
Not only is its appearance pleasing, but the high quality design and polishing of the kettle’s spout make it very easy to use.
"Nanbu Tekki" and "MADE IN JAPAN" are engraved as a proof of authenticity.
Easy Care and Gas and IH Range Compatible
Many ironware products have very specific care instructions and limitations on how they can be used, but this one can be used on a gas or IH range without issue, making it a convenient addition to any kitchen.
After use, just remove the used tea leaves and water inside and allow the inside to dry. The outside can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. It’s important to make sure not to leave any residual liquid.
