Made in Japan

The chrysanthemum has been cherished in Japan for a long time and has much cultural significance.
The flower, in Japanese, is called Kiku-no-hana or Kiku. Originally as medicine, the kiku is said to have come to
Japan as early as the 8th century. During the medieval times, the royalty came to covet the flower as they believed that it held the power to prolong life.

The kiku has been a symbol of the imperial family for centuries, and was officially adopted as the symbol of the royal family in 1869.

The capacities listed show the amount of sencha (Japanese tea leaves) that can be stored in each canister.
