Item No. 40123.1Decorative lacquered Matcha tin (Natsume) When preparing Matcha for guests or during a tea ceremony the Matcha Powder is portioned and sifted into these Natsume tins. The lid is not screwed on or fixated but lies on the body loosely in order to make the handling during the tea ceremony easier. To keep the powder fresh only the amount of Matcha used within the day should be stored in the tin, so as not to lose quality due to oxidation. The tins come in variations of colors from shades of red to black and with different designs. The picture shows some examples.
