Traditional Japanese Cherry Tea Caddy, Small
Kabazaiku is the traditional Japanese craft wherein thin slices of cherry bark are pressed onto objects to give them a rich and lustrous finish. The samurai developed the craft in the town Kakunodate more than 200 years ago. To this day, it’s the only place on earth where cherry bark craft ware is made. The best way to preserve your tea is to leave it away from light, air and humidity. Cherry bark has a high breathability, meaning that it is able to naturally regulate moisture levels and it prevents against excessive dryness or moisture, perfect for the preservation of your precious teas. To be able to use Kabazaiku for a long time: do not store it in wet places or wipe it with a wet towel. Keep away from extreme dryness and direct sunlight. Wipe the bark using a soft cloth or sheet of paper. This beautifully hand-crafted tea caddy is an elegant storage for your wonderful teas.
