Chaire - Ceramic Tea Caddies
|Chaire are ceramic caddies used to hold powdered green tea (matcha) when making thick tea (koicha). Traditionally a chaire has an ivory lid with a gold leaf underside and is stored in a decorative bag called shifuku.|
For thin tea (usucha) or wooden caddies, please see Natsume.
For shifuku bags without chaire, please see Shifuku.
