Recycling Tea Containers

We use a LOT of tea containers! We serve thousands of samples at trade shows, tea tastings and events, so we go through a lot of containers.

Some of our customers might notice a sticker at the bottom of the container indicating it's a recycled container. We put new tea in the containers (each in its own bag) in order to reduce waste, because these containers are still new and usable and we hate to throw them away.

The tea is always fresh!

Other things you can do with the tea containers after you've used them:
  • Put other tea in them.
  • Put nuts or other dry foods in them.
  • Use them to keep dry herbs or spices fresh.
  • Organize small items like buttons, batteries, tacks
  • Use them in the garage to store your nuts, bolts and nails
Got other ideas? Send them to us, and if we like it enough to implement it, we'll send you a free T-shirt.
