A burui (ぶるい)—or matcha sifter—and storage canister for culinary and ceremonial matcha. Sifting matcha is a critical step to a smooth, creamy bowl of ceremonial matcha as well as a well-mixed matcha latte free of clumps.
While matcha sifters can be easily found online, we wanted a sifter that could also be used as tea storage and that would be of equal quality as our handmade teawares. We commissioned Kotodo to craft a matcha sifter in the same cream color as our loose leaf tea tins.
Founded in 1910, Japanese tin maker Kotodo Takahashi has made economical, well-crafted food tins for over 100 years. The quintessential feature of the canister, namely the inner lid and the deep overlap between the body and the outer lid, were developed in order 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.
Cream colored. Measures 3.35"Φ x 3.23”H. Can also be used to store coffee or spices.
Includes matcha sifter, storage canister, and plastic sifting paddle.
