Pines in Chinese art symbolise long life and endurance. In most Chinese art, they are usually combined with Cranes, a bird that the Chinese believe can live for centuries and represents longevity. The combination of pines and cranes is usually known as song ling he shou or "to live as long as the pine and crane". This tea caddy comes with a black cord and tassel, and Nyatoh wood bead to secure the cap.

Compact and mobile, these exquisite tea caddies make great gifts for avid tea drinkers who can't resist having a cup of tea whenever and wherever.
