Many people are aware that a tetsubin effects the taste of water by making it smoother. But, do you know that different brands or different manufacturing method affects the taste remarkably too? Ive carried out the following experiment to verify the effects of the taste between the different manufacturing processes.
Kamayaki process that affects the performance of a tetsubin. After the casting, the tetsubin is in white-silver color and the tetsubin in this condition gets rusty easily. Thus, the tetsubin is then baked with charcoal fire. This process is called Kamayaki which means firing in a pot. The term pot refers to a small open kiln.
The objective of Kamayaki is to reduce the surface of tetsubin which would prevent it from rusting. The charcoal fire is an unsaturated fire; when the surface of tetsubin is reduced, it will turn into a dark blue color.
