【About material】

- Kaikado tea caddies are made with a double structure using tinplate for the inside.

- The tinplate we use is tinplate board made by a traditional manufacturing method called "DOBOZUKE". It's different from normal tinplate. It doesn't have a complete mirror surface but is dull finished.

Precautions for care:

- Please do not heat or use with an IH stove nor in a microwave.

- If you put in something hot, the connecting part may conduct heat and cause the lid to come off. In addition, brass and copper both conduct heat and may cause the item to become hot. Please be careful not to burn yourself.

- Please do not use for liquids especially sauces, carbonated liquids and acidic juices.

- Due to high humidity, please do not put in the refrigerator.

- In the case of a wooden lid, it may become warped over time due to the nature of the natural materials.

- Please avoid saving contents inside the item for an extended period of time.

- If moisture comes in touch with the item, it may change color but the item will still function properly.

Precautions when washing with water:

- Please only wash with only water or very mild detergents and immediately dry completely.

- Please use a soft sponge or cloth when washing. A course sponge may cause the item to become scratched.

- Please do not use in the dishwasher.

【Proper care and handling of your tea caddy】

- Do not wash the caddy (we thoroughly sanitize each caddy prior to shipment).

- Do not place the caddy in a refrigerator or freezer as the material is susceptible to moisture and humidity.

- If you should get water on your caddy, please wipe it off with a soft dry cloth and gently rub caddy to avoid moisture spots.

- After your purchase you will perceive a normal yet subtle change in the colour tone of your Chazutsu: copper in 2-3 months, brass in 1-2 years and tin in 3-5 years. Like fine wine Chazutsu becomes even more appreciated with age.

- It is important to lift the top of the caddy lid softly from the body in order to prevent any possibility of damage.

- When closing the caddy lid please adjust the joint line on the lid with the joint line on the body. This will allow the lid to go down slowly by itself and the air will be released from the caddy. Gently push the lid at the last moment. This will prevent air from entering the caddy.

銅、ブリキ、真鍮と比べて色変化をあまりせず、除菌性がある素材「クリーンブライト CLEANBRIGHT®」を使ったお茶筒です。

●参考サイト:三菱マテリアルトレーディング株式会社

「クリーンブライト CLEANBRIGHT®」は、シャンパンゴールドとも言える色で、日本語で言えば「金」と「おうど色」。「おうど色」は「淡黄」とも呼ばれていて、ちょうど夏目漱石が草枕の中で、木蓮の花の色を『あたたかみのある淡黄に』と表現しているのも印象的でした。 そして、もともと素材が銅合金でもあるので「淡黄銅(たんおうどう)」と呼んでいます。

【素材につきまして】

●開化堂の茶筒は二重構造で、内側はブリキを使用しています。

●開化堂の茶筒に使っていますブリキは、昔ながらの「ドボ漬け」という製法でつくられたブリキの板を使っています。通常のブリキと違い、全体的に完全な鏡面ではなく、少しくすんだ仕上がりのものになります。
