This is the first and only tea-leaf canister in Japan that is purely hand made. Since 1875 until today one family in Kyoto has kept the technique which takes more than 130 processes until completion to make one canister.

Please note: This item is not returnable in case if you once open tear the seal on a white paper which is wrapped around the canister. It is very easy to leave a finger print and won't become resale condition. Thank you for your understanding.

We expect next shipment in Spring but due to small quantity we highly recommend you to order a back-ordered canister by phone in advance. (310-314-8448)
