Product Description

Imari-yaki tea canister with a design of Sakura (cherry blossom).

Imariyaki/Aritayaki:
Imari-yaki is a porcelain made in Arita region of former Hizen Province (today's Saga Prefecture) in Kyushu, Japan. Originally known as Arita-yaki, named after its production region, it became to be known as Imari-yaki when the porcelain was exported to Europe in the 17th century from Imari port, Saga. Ko-imari, literally old imari in Japanese, refers specifically to Imari ware produced in the Edo period (17th-19th century). Today the name Arita-yaki is distinguished from Imari-yaki: porcelain made in Arita is called Arita-yaki and in Imari as Imari-yaki.

Aritayaki Tea Canister:
This refined Arita-yaki tea canister is decorated with serene landscape in single blue color. It comes with a plastic inner cap to keep the canister airtight, protecting the tea leaves from moisture.
