Here at Cup of Tea we have a range of tea caddies and tins to keep your tea safe and sound. So, every cup tastes as fresh as the first!

 

A tea caddy is a must have item for anyone thinking of buying loose leaf tea. So why is a tea caddy so important? It is important because the quality of your loose leaf depends on it. Tea leaves, like chocolate, easily absorb other aromas. Place them in your spice cupboard and they will never be the same again. This is why an airtight tea caddy is essential when it comes to preserving the flavour and taste of your tea.

Our wonderful range of tins will keep your tea ultra-fresh. There are certain teas, especially herbal infusions, that have a larger volume and will therefore require a bigger storage facility.

Tea tins, canisters and caddies are the perfect solution to keep your tea fresh and can always be in style.

The delightful range of tins and caddies at Cup of Tea are perfect for any tea drinker. A tea caddy is essential when it comes to protecting high quality tea from moisture and sunlight by keeping it an airtight container. Not only are our tins great for storage but they also look fantastic in any kitchen and will really make your cup taste extra special.

Storing tea can be very simple. If you keep your tea in an air tight container and store in a cool dry place you will be able to enjoy your tea to the last leaf! In order for tea to taste its best it needs to be kept away from heat, light, air and moisture. Unlike coffee, storing tea in the freezer will damage tea leaves, ruining the resulting brew. Even keeping tea close to a toaster will be enough heat for it to lose some of its scent and flavour. Loose leaf teas are very beautiful and it is tempting to display them in glass containers with a window, however been a small amount of light exposure will degrade the leaves, meaning your tea will lose some of its quality. Tea also easily absorbs odours, so it is worth considering what else is stored near it. The perfect, airtight tin or canister will keep your tea fresh for over a year!

 

Our tea tins are fabulous because:

They protect your favourite tea leaves from humidity, heat and odours so that they stay as fresh as the day they are picked and processed

They are super durable and easy to keep clean

After you finish your tea inside, you can use it to store other leaf teas, tea bags or any other kitchen essential

They make lovely gifts for friends and family

They come in all shapes, sizes and colours so there is something for everyone!
