From Teaopia

Kalahari is an exciting blend of Rooibos, lemongrass, orange peel and mallow blossoms. These natural ingredients combine to create a tea with a refreshing orange flavour. Kalahari is both appealing to the eye and the pallet and is perfect either hot or iced for tea and fruit lovers.

ugh I need to buy me some tea tins!!! The thing is, I keep very few teas in large enough quantities to warrant a standard size, and small tins are difficult to find. Does anyone know of a place that sells tins which can hold 25-50g?
This tea, one of my oldest, is losing it’s flavour. I’ve kept it in the paper bag it comes with, for lack of any suitable alternative. Sad, but true. It’s pretty much just a simple rooibos now with some distant orange flavouring… even the swirls of agave I added gave it very little oomph. Oh well, all good things must end eventually! Now on to find a new rooibos to love. I was getting bored with this one anyhow. (It’ not goodbye just yet! I have atleast two more cups worth)

I was going to recommend the little containers at Cost Plus World Market, but I see you’re in Canada and I don’t think they have those stores there. You might try just checking out kitchen supply shops or big stores like Target. Airtight spice containers are a good bet if you can’t find anything specifically for tea.

Ikea! C’mon, that’s a no brainer ;)

Indigobloom

haha true. Though I keep coming up with tea things that I could use and then remember I have neither the space nor budget for them. If I find a good deal I’ll break down and buy them but otherwise… I’ll have to wait til September!

LiberTEAS

I recommend Specialty Bottle. They have tins of all sizes and great prices: http://www.specialtybottle.com/index.asp?PageAction=Custom&ID=33

Ikea is our downfall. We live a whole 5 minutes from one…daaaangerous. I love it thought.

Harney and Sons will sell their mini tins for sixty cents each. I buy ten at a time. It is the baby tin that fits in their tea chest and holds about one or two ounces. Also, the craft stores sell wedding favor tins and with the ubiquitous forty per cent off coupon, they are also reasonable.

Indigobloom

Harney would likely involve me ordering tea… plus shipping. but wedding tins, hmmm! not a bad idea, thanks Ashmanra!!

Indigobloom

the specialty tea tins look awesome to!! but I’ll look locally first, and save that as a back up. thx Liberteas :)

ashmanra

I think the wedding tins are usually sold in packs of twenty and they often have a clear top. I was going to use my scallop circle punch to make labels for the tin, thus eliminating light at the same time.

Cattibrie

What about the ones for spices that are magnetic and could hang on the wall. You could make labels to cover the glass top. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80102919 Or get some metal jars a a knife holder magnetic strip.

aisling of tea

I’ve got some of those, be warned, they fall open pretty easily.

Indigobloom

eek, tea all over the place! that would be no fun to clean up haha. Ah Ikea… I <3 that place. and it likes my wallet a little too much!!

So I’m starting to realize I should probably pair down the teas in my cupboard, so this one will be my first victim. Despite the fact that it is easily my favorite. Teaopia is gone so I won’t be able to refill this one. :(

I drove up to DAVIDS Tea today, set on getting myself one of those 24 days of tea sets. Unfortunately they were all sold out. :\ I’m debating doing an online order but I still haven’t figured out how I get stuff from my landlord.

Cavocorax

Are you able to get it delivered at work or to a trusted friend? That might make it easier.

Saryn

That’s an idea… except now the 24 days of tea is sold out on DavidsTea’s website. :\

There’s only been a few rooibos teas out there that I’ve really enjoyed. This one isn’t quite one of them. It has a sharp citrusy, herbal, woody smell to it. More citrus in the flavour with pine undertones that you can find in most rooibos, and that itchiness on the back of the throat. The orange peel lingers sweetly and floral notes hit you moments after sipping. The lemongrass is overpowered by the orange peel. Overall it is a nice simple rooibos, but I haven’t been wowed!

It would have to be one of my favorite rooibos teas. I love the floral lemony aroma. It definitely has a earthy flavors in it from the red rooibos needles. It is nice to have during the evening, it is also one of those “warm me up teas.”
