The common water boilers are the cast iron kettles, the electric kettles, high-temperature resistant glass pot that use ethanol or candle as fuel while the pottery kettles use charcoal fire.
Cast Iron Kettles(Sheng Tie Hu in Chinese; Tetsubin in Japanese) are the new favor of tea lovers. Cast Iron Kettle is made by pouring molten iron into either clay or sand molds.

When brewing tea with water that boiled in a cast iron kettle, the flavor of the tea becomes distinctly mellow, sweet and smooth. Meanwhile, the iron content of the kettle is beneficial to the health.
