Inexpensive tins at the Container Store

While looking for closet stuff online I noticed they've got what looks like some good containers for storing teas.

Those are pricey. Upton has the same tin I think in a sample size that will hold around 10 sessions for around half a buck, but you must buy a dozen to get that price.

Wow. Those are really nice. However I find the shipping costs at the Container Store to be too much (at least I did a while back when I ordered those recycling bins).

I wish there were other Tea Aficionados as work so I could share the cost of buying these in bulk.

Will check the Upton place ...

Hey Jennie,
If you get a dozen...you can also give tea as gifts with them...etc. I have gotten around 6 dozen of them so far. I also use them everyday. Can't beat 'em.

I second chip's recommendation. I bought two dozen and use them all the time. They aren't the most airtight containers you will find, but they're good for short term storage.
