Fantastic NEW Tea Tins & Caddies

It’s a fact that loose-leaf teas and real-leaf tea bags taste better and stay fresher for longer if they are stored in tea caddies. And because our teas are produced in small batches for the very best flavour, we always recommend that our customers store them in airtight tins to keep them at their best. There are other reasons for purchasing tea tins, and as we become more aware of zero waste shopping, and the need to reduce our waste, 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, look no further!

But maybe it’s a gift you’re after for the tea lover in your life? If you’re looking for an exciting yet useful gift for someone special in your life, keep reading. With this in mind, we’ve picked our favourite NEW tea caddies and tins to either get your teas in order or to treat someone special, which, of course, could be you!

Five 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
