Storage Container

by Jonathan » Jan 20th, '08, 03:11

Hi.
I found these great food storage containers that are acrylic inside a bamboo container. I know that everyone says to stay away from plastic, but as these containers allow very little light, and have an airtight seal, I was wondering if they might be possible to store tea. Especially if the tea will only be stored in the container for a month at a time...check these out and let me know.

I would love these in my tea shop.
Thanks,
Jonathan

Unless that window were UV coated, I'd say no. Even then, I wouldn't be too enthusiastic.

I agree with Mary. The seals on those things don't look good either. They also look to be too big for most types of tea, except for maybe twisted oolongs.
