Thank you so much for the advice! The rust is gone, with a nice blackened seal in its place. I didn't have any cheap tea at home, so I had to sacrifice to sacrifice a bit of Dan Cong. Well worth it, though.

Oh that’s great to hear. How long did you cook with tea?

I boiled/simmered it for half an hour, then let it rest for four hours or so. I boiled fresh water in the tetsubin four times and there it was, good as new.
Now I'm wondering about the first tea drinker who discovered this method, seeing the rust inside and going "screw it, I'm gonna have my tea anyway".

It took me a couple of years, but i finally managed to find a second chagama that i fancy.

Hope you enjoy. Maker is Seiko Sato. Herons and what i assume to be pine-cones (or maybe armadillos :D ).

That is a lovely, subtle design. Quite a marvelous thing to have at the tea table.
