This matcha sifter (tea canister) is made from tin-plated steel coated externally in a matte black lacquer. Featuring an inner screen, and bamboo paddle, this canister is perfect for sifting and storing a new bag of matcha.
If you are a regular matcha drinker, pre-sifting the entire bag of matcha streamlines the matcha making process as the tea is ready to be scooped directly into the chawan. The pre-sifted matcha can either be stored in this canister, or transfered to a natsume or other tea caddy using a wide-scooped mizuya chashaku.
Founded in 1910, Kotodo (江東堂) has been producing handmade tea canisters for 112 years. Compared to machine-made canisters, their washi-wrapping is seamless, with no bumps where the lid meets the body, producing a clean silhouette. Additionally, the lid can be rotated counter-clockwise until it clicks, ensuring the pattern is perfectly aligned.
