Introducing a traditional tea container that will elevate your matcha experience - this tea container (Natsume) is specially designed to properly preserve matcha, which is sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity. This popular Tsugaru lacquering technique involves applying multiple coats of colored lacquer and meticulous polishing, resulting in a profound and captivating quality. The finishing techniques offer endless possibilities, allowing for varied combinations of colors and patterns.

While handmade, the lid and container are made to fit perfectly through meticulous craftsmanship. You can pair it with Kara-nuri Tea Scoop to enhance your tea experience.
