Osaka Naniwa Suzuki has been designated as a traditional craft by the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry. Also, centering around the "Contemporary Master Craftsman" Tatsumasa Imai (recipient of a 2012 Award for Outstandingly Skilled Workers), the company is a group of artisans, 5 of who are registered as nationally licensed craftsman, that only produces items made of tin.
Even now, these artisans carefully create items one by one using traditional manufacturing methods. Under the guidance of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, items made of tin by the manufacturer, such as sake cups and tea cups, can be safely used as tableware.
It is said that the taste of a drink changes depending on what it is served in. Alcohol inside a tin item is said to have a mellow flavor without any coarseness. Also, for warm sake, it warms up quickly and increases richness. As it also has great thermal insulation properties, it is greatly appreciated by alcohol connoisseurs.

[Features of Tinware]
1. Quickly warms & quickly cools!
Heating and cooling. In both cases, the transfer of heat to the surrounding area has to occur. Compared to earthenware, tin transfers heat 1.8 times quicker and conveys it to the entire item 50 times quicker, making it the perfect container for chilled or warmed drinks.
2. With a luxurious soft feel against the mouth!
At one time, tin was worth an amount similar to that of gold and silver. This item luxuriously uses such tin that has been individually carefully polished creating a rim that feels beautiful and smooth against the mouth.
The thick rim provides a soft feel against the mouth.
3. Fine lather created through its uneven texture!
In order to deliciously enjoy beer, it must be covered with a layer of fine foam. The uneven texture on the inside of the tumbler creates fine bubbles when beer comes into contact with it.
4. High sealing performance attained through machining!
Osaka tin tea containers are made by machining thickly cast tin. Their lids made at the hands of artisans are easy to open yet also keep away air, moisture and UV rays.

●Handling Precautions:
*Tin is a soft metal so there may be small scratches on it and it may dent if dropped.
*The inner side may change color. If you use for a long time,​ the inner side may change depending on the type of drink. Please enjoy the slightly different colors created by each kind of alcoholic drink.
*Avoid using over an open flame as the melting point of tin is low (235 degrees).
*Cannot be used in a dishwasher,​ dish dryer,​ microwave or oven.
*Tin is a metal that has high thermal conductivity. As its thermal conductivity is high,​ if it contains a hot liquid,​ you will not be able to hold it and there is a chance you may burn yourself.
*Do not keep in your refrigerator's freezer compartment. Tin can store a large amount of heat and so your hands can get freezer burns due to frostbite. Also,​ it may cause an alteration in its composition through a change in its metallographic structure.
●Care Instructions:
*After use,​ wash using cold or warm water,​ mild detergent and the soft side of a sponge. After washing,​ properly remove moisture. (Any water droplets that remain may cause staining.)
*Tumbler stains can be removed with melamine sponges etc. (Do not use melamine sponges on items colored with lacquer.)
*Wipe off dust and fingermarks from time to time using a soft cloth. This will help preserve luster.
*Do not use metal scourers or items containing abrasives when cleaning as these may cause scratches.
