I love Andrews and Dunham’s Damn Fine Tea. I still have all of the empty tins… even the Caravan, which I emptied and sent the tea out to someone here on Steepster. I love the artwork on the labels, and the tins are a nice size if I ever get around to parting with the labels. (Maybe gently cut them off and keep them somewhere. Laminate them for bookmarks. I don’t know.)

I agree with humangirl. I love the packaging of Andrews and Dunham’s Damn Fine Tea. I even keep the shipping boxes! The artwork on the labels is awesome, and they always include a quirky little extra like a patch or tattoos. What’s not to love?

I am a big fan of Harney & Son’s square black tins with the black and gold labels. The lids fit nice and snug and they stack well.

I think I should also give some props to The Tao of Tea – I love their double lidded tins, and the labels are beautiful too. Blends for Friends have beautiful tins, and from what I understand, they also package it all up like a gift, which is nice. I also love Ducky Life Tea’s packaging!

I really like the adagio tins. Too bad they are not the standard anymore. Their sample tins were great too.

I like Samovar’s. It is biodegradable and it includes cute stickers. :)

I have to say, I love the simplicity but elegance of the Harney and Sons tins

I’m also a sucker for the Harney and Sons tins! Especially the ones like this:
There’s something about them that always brings back lazy rainy days spent surrounded by books at the Barnes and Noble.

While I find round tins more aesthetically pleasing, I bow to the elegant practicality of square tins. They are easier to organize and make mre efficient use of space. The only square tins I have experience with are those from Harney & Sons so they get my vote.
