Paulownia Tea Caddy (L)

Paulownia Tea Caddy (L)


This traditional tea caddy is made from a single piece of hollowed out paulownia wood, known as "Kiri” in Japan. The lid and base are a tight fit and is finished with urushi, which seals the surface. Both lightweight and sturdy, Kiri is used for making wooden box packaging to store food as well as fine edge tools and kimonos. The dry wood preserves the dry state and natural flavours of tea for long periods of time. Naturally resistant to humidity and moisture, it is ideal for storing tea leaves, coffee, and dry spices.
