Sakura tea caddy and a teaspoon


Kabazaiku is a unique Japanese fashioning technique in which a bark from wild cherry trees is used. Kabazaiku tea caddies are greatly loved for their aesthetics and their ability to absorb moisture. The ability to absorb moisture is crucial for proper tea preservation. A double lid helps to keep your tea airtight. The art of making kabazaiku is passed from parents to their children. When making kabazaiku, if bark is properly taken off, the cherry tree itself is not being damaged and the bark grows back again within a few years.

In 1976, kabazaiku was officially acknowledged as a national craft.
