Why We Love It

This tea caddy is handcrafted with precision and care in Yamanaka, Ishikawa Prefecture, using the time-honored techniques of Yamanaka-nuri, which has been producing fine lacquerware since the late 16th century.

Yamanaka-nuri is an exquisite form of traditional Japanese lacquerware, renowned for its intricate designs and refined finish. Skilled artisans take great care in preparing the base material, which is then decorated using various techniques such as painting, gold or silver leafing, and inlay work. Layers of lacquer are then applied to the base material, and after careful polishing and sanding between each layer, the result is an elegant, high-gloss works of art.

Featuring an intricate Japanese garden motif, this natsume tea caddy is designed to hold and dispense matcha powdered green tea, and an essential part of the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. It is an artistic treasure that reflects the passion and dedication of Yamanaka-nuri craftspeople.

Beautiful Matcha Tint - For Tea Ceremony, Not for Matcha Storage

I bought this matcha tin, assuming that I can use for tea ceremony and storing my high quality ceremonial matcha. This tin is very pretty and gorgeous color.

This lid is loose and is NOT airtight, so it couldn’t be used for storing matcha. The tea will go bad and turn yellowish because the air will get in.

I contacted their customer service, and they quickly resolved the issue. Great customer service.

Beautiful Matcha Tin

Thank you for a great customer service

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. This type of lacquer tea caddy is principally for ceremonial use, so this is how tea is used within the tea ceremony. As you point out, it is not airtight, so it is not suitable for long-term storage. For long-term storage you would need an airtight container such as the cherry-bark tea caddies. I’m sorry if this was not sufficiently clear. We will make sure to make the product description more clear, and we will contact you directly to arrange a refund.
