Kaikado Tea Canister - Copper | 開化堂 - 紅銅茶罐

These handmade copper tea canisters have a double-walled design which guarantees excellent air tightness, protecting your tea from sunshine and humidity and keeping it nice and fresh.

Once the joint line on the lid and body are aligned, the lid falls slowly and smoothly on its own, expelling the excess air on the way down.

With an elegant, minimalist design, these tea canisters are left unlacquered intentionally, so every time they are handled, they change colour tone and develop a rich patina unique to each person or household. Like fine wine, they are appreciated more with age, becoming heirlooms to pass down to future generations.

Caring for your Kaikado Tea Canister
There's no need to wash these canisters (they are sanitised thoroughly before shipping), as they shouldn't get wet. 
If they do get wet, wipe them with a dry cloth until all the moisture is gone.
Store them in a cool dry place. 

Based in Kyoto, Kaikado has been hand-making these iconic tea canisters (chaztusu) since 1875. Now run by its sixth-generation helmsman Taka, Kaikado's traditional tea canisters are still crafted using their original manufacturing process, a meticulous craft that involves 130 steps. Each tea canister is made to last; a living tool that can be used for centuries.
