This Tokoname-yaki chatsubo (tea jar 茶壺) features engravings of a mountainous landscape.
Modeled after the larger chatsubo which are traditionally used to store tencha before it is milled into matcha, this tea jar is perfect for presentation and heightening the tea making experience. As it does not have an inner lid, it is not suitable for long-term tea storage.
Tokoname-yaki (常滑焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Tokoname in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The site of one of Japan’s Six Ancient Kilns, pottery has been made in Tokoname since the 12th century. Today, Tokoname ware is known for its iconic brick-red clay called shudei. Famously used in teaware and bonsai pots, this clay’s vibrant colour comes from its rich iron content. Tea steeped in unglazed Tokoname teapots is said to have a mellower taste.
