Previously, tea was prepared in powdered form. With the emergence of loose-leaf tea, the Japanese public needed a means to steep tea leaves. During the 19th century, cast iron teapots became symbols of status, intricately and gracefully decorated. Teapots like these are what you will encounter at Happy Lucky’s Teahouse.
