Kaikado 120g Copper Tea Caddy
We are proud to offer a true artisan Chazutsu Tea Caddy from the 130 year old Kyoto based Kaikado. Since 1875, these caddies have been made by hand in the back streets of Kyoto. Each caddy requires 130 steps for completion - every step is done painstakingly by hand. This 120g container features an exterior of rolled copper with the classic inner lid. The external lid fits perfectly - when the edges are aligned to lid will slowly close on its own removing any additional air.
The exterior of the caddy will patina with use and today the most coveted canisters show the beauty of years of use. In short, this is the perfect storage for Kettl's teas.
