- Traditional Japanese Tea Kettles made by craftsman
- Heavy weight and strong tea pot that will last for generations
The “Itome” is a very classic style tea pot. Well made and strong, a tried and proven design that dates back for centuries. This iron kettle is easy to use, and designed to be incorporated into everyday life.
The finishing is done using the traditional technique used in iron kettle making in Japan, unglazed at 800 degrees, covered with an oxide film to prevent rust. This is followed by a lacquered baking finish on the top and a burnt finish of lacquer inside the pot. The bottom of the tea pot is flat, which enhances the heat conductivity that can also be used on an electric stove.
The water that is boiled using a casting kettle is able to remove almost all chlorine from tap water. After boiling, the water will be mild and have no smell. The hot water will have the added merit of iron minerals. You can enjoy tasty hot tea with a hint of healthy iron. The iron of hot water and tannin of tea also have a chemical reaction to make an enjoyable tasty tea.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.
Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
