There is not a lot of this tea left. I wish DAVID’s offered tins that held just 50g, because this one is a once in a while dessert tea the large 100g tins makes this tea seem daunting. Does that make sense? I like this tea, but just in small, small doses…

Indigobloom

that makes total sense!! I’ve been searching for a 50, or even 25g tin for months! Afraid to use the dollar store variety, filled with all that BPA blech!

MaddHatter

Try TeaDesire, they have beautiful tins…

They don’t have 50g tins, but they do have 25g and beautiful 100g tins that I have sitting on my kitchen counter.

Indigobloom

thanks MaddHatter! I’ll keep those in mind for sure. For now, I’m trying to stay local… shipping costs and all *sighs

Indigobloom

looks like they have some really nice teas, I wish I could order a bunch!!

MaddHatter

I’m not about to give this company anymore money for teas. I went into their Naniamo store, and nearly died! as a former sales rep for various companies I was shocked and appalled at their up-sales tactics and lack of friendliness, their oolongs are impeccable, but I am hard pressed to spend the money. But They are the only place I have found tins I like (until DAVIDs gets some new fashionable ones)

Indigobloom

oh. another one of THOSE companies. Le sigh…

Cattibrie

David does small personalized tins for weddings and such. I wonder if we emailed them on-masse if they would get the hint we want smaller tins and sell them un-personalized.

MaddHatter

I remember an employee mentioning that there is something in the works for smaller tins – but that could be just me perpetuating rumour?

If you find tins somewhere else be sure to bring them into DavidsTea, as you can get a 50 cent discount off your tea by bringing in any tin, not just a DavidsTea tin (so long as you are getting 50 grams or more) :)

Teaopia now has some small washi tins. Not too expensive, and with Davids, you can get nearly any amount of tea as I’m sure you know. I haven’t checked out to see whether Silk Road has any small tins.

Bio

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
