Tempting Tea Tins

three tea tins

I'm fond of both tea and neat storage containers, so of course I'm thrilled to find items that provide both. When you've finished the tea, you've got a container that you can use for many thing - more tea being just one option. It's been a while since I last wrote about tea tins, so it's time for an update.

This post got triggered when Uncrate pointed me to Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea, shown above.

This whimsical tea tin has six compartments; unlike the others, it's designed for tea bags.

The Teastack is pretty self-explanatory.

Humanithé sells organic (bio) tea and has some interesting tins.

Cynthia, I'll join you in the Fan Club for Cute Tins. When I'm in Paris (short trip coming up in a few weeks) I'm likely to go to Sentou, which sells the 100drine tins. Hey, one of those would be a useful souvenir.
