Has anyone bought tin cans from specialtybottle?

I have some green tea I'd like to store. Has anyone bought from specialtybottle.com? I was looking at their Tin cans for storing tea, and it says their products are made from "Tinplated Steel".

I have never heard of them, but they came up from a google search. Is this a safe material? Has anyone bought from them and confirmed that it's not some cheap stuff that can cause metal toxicity or if it's not welded using lead solder?

Green tea is best kept in their original pouch, sealed tightly and ideally in a fridge. Then with additional odor protecting cover.

In a tin your greens will go flat very quickly. Matter of weeks.
