Custom-made in Japan for us, this tea caddy is a favourite of our editorial team. It combines minimalist Japanese elegance with high-quality craftsmanship and functionality. The tight-fitting lid allows for optimal aroma protection when storing fresh green teas and black or oolong teas alike.
Sumi Black 墨絵
The tea caddy was custom-lacquered for us in the shade sumi black. Sumi (墨絵) refers to a form of Chinese or Japanese ink painting, which uses only black ink made from soot, and which is historically linked to zen Buddhism. Often a landscape is sketched in only a few strokes. The art lies in the bigger picture, which is created through sweeping brushwork.
