Composed of 99% tin and 1% silver, Japanese pewter is sublimely suited for the consumption of food and beverages, not only enduringly retaining its radiance, form, and luster but also its complexity - all without the necessity of frequent polishing as with silver.
This impeccably crafted matcha canister, featuring a name that references the difference in lid placement compared to traditional containers, offers a seamless union of lid and body. Housed within is a secondary lid, making it an ideal vessel for the transportation and preservation of matcha, with a capacity of up to 100g of unsifted matcha or 50g of loose-leaf sencha. The extraordinary heft of this natsume in your hands, coupled with the captivating spectacle of the lid closing silently under gravity, makes it a lasting fascination.
