The Yoshita Kasho Glass Natsume Matcha Container features the exquisite karamatsu "larch tree" motif. This design showcases the larch tree leaves painted in black and brown lacquer, with each stroke meticulously detailed and accented with gold dust, creating a harmonious blend of colors and textures.

The center of the larch tree design is beautifully adorned with mother-of-pearl shells, adding a touch of elegance and capturing the essence of the larch tree's presence.

The lid, made from keyaki "zelkova" wood and finished with the fukiurushi “wiped lacquer” technique, elegantly complements the glass body, enhancing the overall allure and natural elegance of the caddy.

Designed for durability, the gold leaf is protected by a glass layer, making it resistant to scratches and suitable for everyday use. Unlike typical glassware used mainly in summer, this tea caddy's comprehensive decoration allows it to be a delightful addition to tea sessions in any season.

The thickness of the glass enhances the brilliance of the gold and silver foil, contrasting beautifully with the green of the matcha, offering a unique aesthetic experience. This tea caddy has gained popularity as an innovative alternative in tea ceremonies, blending modernity with the timeless elegance of Japanese tea culture.
