Looking for Tea Containers

Hey Steepsters,

I’m looking to buy some (5-10) tea containers to put my loose leaf teas in. I would prefer steel tins I think but if you have anything else that’s interesting let me know. I would also prefer if they are all the same size (different designs is okay). I’m not looking for giant cans, maybe 200-250g maximum (smaller is okay). I Live in Toronto so the closer you are to me the better for shipping. Let me know if you have anything!

You can buy Davids Tea tins in store (or online?) for $2.50 a piece, I think. They hold about 100 – 125 grams of tea, depending on the tea.

There’s also a website that a number of Steepsterites got tins from a few months back but of course I can’t think what it’s called..

That’s probably what I’ll do. These seem cheaper than a lot of the other tins I’ve seen, and you can get colored ones in store.

You can check out canwax.com I just ordered tins from them, they come as small as 1/4 oz. it’s a Canadian company located in HUnstville, They’re shipping is reasonable, but you can also pick up.

The ones at Imperial Tea Court are pretty nice – they’re “metal” and come in a dark red, black, or silver. The smalls are $2, large $2.50
They have steel ones too – in different sizes – http://www.imperialtea.com/Canisters_for_proper_tea_storage_s/1845.htm

And you could paint the metal tins, too. As I’ve said before the Washi tins are really pretty, but if I have to wash them out….gets kinda problematic.
