Precious Metal Caddies by Kaikado Tea

130 years old tea company Kaikado pride themselves with their tea caddies or Chazutsu. They’ve been experimenting and using different metals through decades and now have a selection of double-walled caddies that (besides being air tight), can be acquired in a number of different precious metals such as copper, brass, tin and silver. But what’s really interesting about the tea caddies is how they various metals change colour tone over periods of time and hereby “ages with beauty”. Copper changes in 2-3 months, brass in 1-2 years and tin in 3-5 years. Like fine wine Chazutsu becomes even more appreciated with age.

From Kaikado Teas, “Growing beauty through time is the principle fascination in Chazutsu. Gently caressing the entire body of Chazutsu day after day brings out a mysteriously elegant sheen and gleam to its years. Chazutsu provides utility and pleasure as it ages gracefully with ownership.”
