Kaikado Copper Tea Caddies

Product Description

Artisanal tea caddies materfully handcrafted by century old Kaikado in Kyoto. Kaikado's metal craftsmanship is considered a cultural heritage in Japan. Each caddy is constructed of two layers; an inner layer of tin and an outer layer of tin, brass, copper or silver. This provides a completely airtight condition to keep the contents dry. it can be also used for storing tea, coffee, seeds, beans or any other item that must be kept away from moisture. 

A beautiful patina on the outer layer will develop over time, which is appreciated as part of the charm of the material. But one always has the option of keeping it shiny like new with a gentle polish.  

These tea caddies can be repaired even if they are dented or distorted. They can be passed down from generation to generation because of the traditional hand making techniques being preserved and practiced.
