Iyo Chrysanthemum charcoal has been used for centuries during Japanese tea ceremonies as a source of fuel and to heat water in the cast iron kettle. The Iyo Chrysanthemum charcoal name is derived from how the cross sections of this beautiful charcoal looks like a Chrysanthemum flower. It is also popularly referred to as chanoyu-zumi or charcoal for tea. Chrysanthemum charcoal plays a crucial role in this 400 year tradition that embodies Japanese omotenashi or the spirit of hospitality.
Iyo Chrysanthemum charcoal is a type of black charcoal made in Ehime prefecture out of sawtooth oak wood. Unlike white binchotan that is popularly used for cooking, this black charcoal ignites quickly and wafts a faint scent desirable to create a zen atmosphere.
