If you GOOGLE Japanese ...../macaron..../tea tin...../tea canister...../tea caddy .......for sale ; there are many different kinds for sale and some are really beautiful. The websites I found all seem to ship world wide. The ones I looked at were not full of tea , they were just for tea storage.
Yes, that's natsume; tea caddy for matcha tea powder. Natsume usually refers to lacquered wooden caddy for usucha(weak tea) nowadays. Incidentally, ceramic ones are used for koicha(strong tea).

yes i know where to buy them from. Im just looking for what the design or structure is called. If you look at the middle of the caddy theres this grip(?), this makes different from the others. My real question is do you know the company/supplier/factory that produces these. and is there custom made ones and can i buy them in bulk
