Master Kimura Masahiko's artwork. An elegant, large tea jar for storing tea.

Traditionally, before the era of air-tight packaging, tea farmers used to keep their tea in large "tsubo", vessels. In Kyoto, in the summer season, they sealed the tsubo with paper and carried them to Mount Hiei. The mountain was cool, keeping the precious Uji tea fresh and aromatic. The farmers kept their Tencha in tsubo all year round and only took out the amount they wanted to grind for matcha.

The chatsubo is not airtight, thus we recommend you keep the teas in it inside their original packaging. The jar has a large, wide mouth, so you can easily put in and take out your tea packages.

The chatsubo we have for sale is the one you see in the photos.

Handling precautions

Handling precautions - Bizenyaki Kazaritsubo

Usage:
Avoid placing it on hot surfaces, like a stove, and never use it in a microwave or oven.
Keep only packed tea in the chatsubo.

Cleaning:
You do not need to wash the chatsubo. If you wish to clean it, wipe it with a towel.
As you touch it, the natural moisture of your hands might leave stains on the surface. You can easily remove that by gently rubbing it with your fingers.
Never put it in the dishwasher or dryer!

Storage:
Always keep the chatsubo dry.

How to tie the ribbon (kuchio):
Step 1: Make sure the ribbon will be where the chatsubo's front is. Wrap the ribbon around the head so that the two ends would be the same length. On the right side should be the split end and on the left side should be the looped end.
Step 2: Pull the split end so that the looped end would be shorter.
Step 3: Cross the two ends.
Step 4: Take the looped end, and thread it over the center.
Step 5: Pull the ends. Make sure the knot is neither too tight nor too loose.
Step 6: Twist the two ends: now the split end should be on the right above and the looped end on the left, below it. Lift the split end.
Step 7: Make another loop from the split end too (let's call this the "double loop")
Step 8: Thread the looped end through the hole you formed with the double loop. (Picture 8-10)
Step 9: Pull the two loops so that they are even in length. The split end should fall to the right side.
Step 10: Silk is not easy to tie, it might take a few attempts to do it right. You can always adjust and neaten the ribbon at the end.
