At a Glance

This Tea Canister, or chazutsu, is handcrafted from Takaoka copper by talented Japanese artisans. For instance, this copperware tea canister features a textured shell and a double layer copper lid that glides on smoothly. As a result, the airtight fit protects your tea leaves from any unwanted humidity. In addition, the Takaoka copper material helps absorb moisture to maintain the long lasting aroma and flavor of the tea leaves.

Takaoka copperware is a traditional craft in Japan. In fact, Takaoka copperware earned its name from Takaoka city in Toyama prefecture since the early 1600's. Artisans utilize skillful hands-on casting and production techniques, such as polishing, metal carving and inlaying to create products with this material. Only skilled artisans with years of experience can master producing a chazutsu tea canister with Takaoka copperware.
