Copper Tea Canister
USD$108.70 – USD$145.72
Made in Japan
The airtight construction of the Azmaya Tea Canister, along with its incredible precisely fitting inner lid, help protect tea leaves from humidity and moisture, enhancing the freshness, flavour & scent of its contents by preventing them from drying out over longer periods of storage time. In addition to tea, the canisters are useful for storing many other impermanent products such as spices, grains or coffee.
Known for its high antibacterial & antimicrobial properties, ideal for tea storage, each 100% copper canister is crafted as a seamless tube using a single plate rolled out evenly as an integral form, then coated in a protective layer of wax which gradually wears away as the surface develops its characteristically rich patina over time.
Tea canisters are available in two finishes:
AZMAYA Copper Tea Canisters are intentionally left uncoated: open to copper’s natural chemical oxidation. The finish & colour will transform over time to a stunningly deep rust-like patina, a process accelerated by extended handling and use.
Silver canisters are tin plated over the base copper, helping in preventing the otherwise inevitable chemical oxidation of the more vulnerable metal now well shielded underneath. The tin-plated texture gradually transitions from a high shine to a deeper silver over time, a process also accelerated by extended handling and use.
φ7.3cm × H6.3cm (2.9″ x 2.5″)
φ8cm × H9.5cm (3.1″ x 3.7″)
φ9cm × H11.8cm (3.5″ x 4.6″)
To clean, please dry wipe using a soft cloth.
Cleaning will help change the colour more consistently over time.
Although spots or darkening gradually become a part of character, if you are concerned about dirt, please lightly polish with a sponge using gentle detergent. Dry thoroughly.
Please note that polishing too hard may cause scratches or discolouration on the surface.
