In a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, every element of the ritual matters. One of such elements is Natsume, a little matcha tin can. Typically, only a certain amount of powder is poured into it, depending on how many guests are being served. Natsume is not an airtight package, so it is not recommended to keep matcha in it permanently, but only during the tea ritual. The Chanoyu ceremony is several hundred years old and plays an important role in Japanese culture, where it is believed that the preparation of tea requires the hand of a real master. The Natsume box will bring you one step closer to the real ritual of preparing matcha at home.
