This caddy is inspired by the celadon made by the Longquan kiln during the Song Dynasty (960–1279). A pair of irises in a deep blue paint wrap decorate one side of the caddy, matching well with the blue and white patterned cloth that separates the clay lid from the base of the caddy.

The lid fits snugly to the base of the caddy and provides an airtight environment to store tea in. It is best to store one type of tea in a caddy like this, as the unglazed interior will likely absorb the scent of whatever tea is stored in it over a long period of time.

The Longquan Kiln is known for its celadon wares and pale blue and plum green glazes. As the Jingdezhen Kiln gained popularity, the wares from the Longquan Kiln became more difficult to find.
