The Large Cherry Bark Tea Caddy (130g) has been hand-crafted from wild cherry tree bark for the purpose of keeping your tea as fresh, and therefore as tasty, as possible. This is a high quality gift which we recommend for people who really appreciate both their tea and traditional Japanese craftsmanship. This tea caddy has been crafted purely from wood (unlike the smaller version has no metal inner tin) measures 12cm high x 8cm dia and comes complete with a gift box.
Please note that this product does not actually contain tea.
The Large Cherry Bark Tea Caddy has been crafted in Kakunodate which is renowned for its samurai houses and rows of cherry trees, which is why it is also known as Little Tokyo. It is where the crafting of the wild cherry bark wood or Kabazaiku has flourished for over 230 years. Kaba means the bark of the Yamazakura Tree which makes the work completely unique, and Zaiku means craftsmanship. This unique and traditional Japanese craft provides a stunning range of products which have a rich deep colour, glossiness, smoothness, strength and moisture/dry proof character.

This tea caddy simply oozes class and workmanship. The outside is covered in cherry bark and the interior is the hollowed out section fro. A large cherry tree branch. There is a snug inner lid and the outer lid also slides on ver singly thus keeping your matcha dry and fresh. It's a lovely object and I have mine on display with some beautiful chaw an in my house.
