Kaikado - Brass Cannister 開化堂黃銅茶罐(40g)

Based in Kyoto, Kaikado has been producing Japan's iconic tea caddies since 1875. Now run by its sixth-generation helmsman Taka, these traditional handmade tea canisters (or chaztusu) are still crafted using Kaikado’s original manufacturing process, a meticulous craftsmanship that involves 140 steps. The elegant design is intentionally left unlacquered, so that every time a Kaikado tin is handled it will develop a rich patina unique to each household, transforming them into heirlooms to pass down to future generations. The double-walled construction guarantees excellent air tightness and will protect tea leaves from humidity whilst helping to maintain their scent.

Dimensions: 6.5. x H6.5cm
Material: Brass Lined with Tin
Place of Origin: Kyoto, Japan
