A hand-lacquered tin canister from Japanese tin maker, Kotodo Takahashi. The quintessential feature of the canister, namely the inner lid and the deep overlap between the body and the outer lid, were designed to protect delicate tea leaves from humid and moist environments. This structure ensures the airtightness of the canister and its cylindrical shape prevents any moisture from accumulating in corners.
It is our preferred tea store and can also be used to store coffee or spices. Cream colored. See the larger canister here.
