Iron kettles that were first made in Iwate 300 years ago have become known as Nambu Tekki, and since its inception, people far and wide have fallen in love with the delicious water boiled in these kettles.

Water boiled in iron kettles becomes soft and tastes good even when cooled. Outside of Japan, they are especially popular in other tea growing countries such and China and Taiwan and are recently gaining popularity in western countries due to a new appreciation of delicious water.
