Tea Caddies - The perfect, stylish storage solution

Perfect storage solutions for teas & more! We know that loose-leaf teas taste better and stay fresher for longer if they are stored in tea caddies. And because our teas are processed in small batches for the very best flavour, they should be stored in air-tight tins to keep them at their best. With more and more of us moving towards zero waste shopping, we need practical yet attractive vessels for not just our teas, but other foodstuffs. So, whether you need to store pulses, home bakes, sweets or pet treats, we’ve got storage solutions for you. Tea, alongside other foodstuffs, benefits from being stored in the dark, so non-transparent containers are perfect (sorry jars!). Our range of metal and stainless-steel containers are food-safe and can be used over and over again. We have an extensive range of tea caddies that suit many tastes from illustrative or bold to cool and contemporary.

Reasons for storing your teas in airtight caddies:

•    Sunlight – It is advisable to store tea in darkness to prevent bright light from degrading the strength of the flavour as well as the aroma.

•    Oxygen – It is a common myth that all moisture has been removed from loose-leaf tea leaves so oxidisation wouldn’t be an issue. It is, however, imperative to store tea in an airtight container to prevent the risk of oxidisation. This is especially important          for fresher teas which have some moisture retention such as green teas.   

•    Heat – Our homes are often kept extremely warm through central heating systems. This can pose a threat to the freshness of your tea leaves if they are not stored correctly.

 •   Odour – One of the most effective ways to protect the flavour and aroma of your tea is to store it well away from other strong flavoured or scented foods. Never store your tea anywhere near pungent spices or herbs. Even other bold teas will affect the integrity of your tea so beware. 

•    Moisture – Moisture is bad for any dried food product, not least tea. Tea has been withered, rolled, oxidised, dried and packaged to provide the consumer with the perfect tea leaves for your cup. Moisture can undo that lengthy process, and we advise teas to be stored away from the oven, kettle, and any other forms of moisture and humidity. This can be difficult in kitchens where moisture is inevitable, so a tea caddy really is the perfect answer. 


So, with this in mind, we’ve picked our favourite tea caddies and tins to get your teas in order!
