Note: Packages for most tea products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions where stated, click here to see info and photos).

Chikutan, or bamboo charcoal, is charcoal made by a traditional process of roasting bamboo in a 1000C degree kiln for a month. The charcoal is then powdered and used in a proprietary dyeing process to create a soft, natural gray hue for the material of this bag.
