How big are the Davids Teas tins?

The website lists them as 450ml but I’m not sure what that works out to in ounces. Are they pretty big? I only have my teas in the 3oz bags from Adagio so far and I’m looking to upgrade to something a bit prettier!

It depends on what tea you put in it. The average, I’ve found, is that 100g is approx 3/4 of the tin. Fluffier teas take up more space with less weight, and denser teas do the opposite. But 100g will usually get you at least 3/4 of the way full.

(capacity: 450 ml 5H x 3 D)

get out your ruler, probably will hold 3 oz just fine

Yeah, when I tried to convert ml to oz I got 15oz which is a lot, so I figured there had to be a better way to measure! xD

that’s right, it’s 15 fl oz. a measuring “cup” is 8fl oz or 250 ml

Ah, fluid ounces. Got it!

I think 100 g is 3.5 ounces or something like that, so you should be good to go! : ) When I buy things in ounces I always think I’m getting ripped off. “Wait, I only get 1???” : )

It’s especially bad when I buy perfume. 1oz doesn’t seem like much, but I’ve yet to finish any of my 1oz bottles!

I only have one… Which houses rock sugar right now, but I would definitely say they could easily hold 3oz

i have a dented silver tin that i’ve been unsure what to fill it with. SUGAR. right now my sugar is in a glass mason jar and it’s fairly annoying to open it. thanks for the idea!
(seems like such a no brainer, but i honestly ONLY think of tea when concerning those tins. i am apparently locked away inside the creative box lately.)

I just checked one of my David’s tins. It depends on the tea, as Shaynebear said, but I was able to put 100 gm or 3 1/2 oz in it.
