TeaCakes of Yorkshire Matt Black Airseal Tea Caddy
As with all our products they must look good, be of the best quality and work well, our tea caddies are no exception. Although all steps in the supply of good tea are important the one most single important and generally most overlooked is the storage in the consumer’s home.
We have tested many caddies for leakage of air and moisture over the years and sadly we have found although looking good most of the tin caddies with hinged, slip or push top lids are woefully inadequate for the job, allowing constant seepage of air causing the contents to spoil far too quickly.
This caddy measures 14cm tall (just big enough for the special spoon to be kept in) and 8.7cm diameter holding approximately 150g of tea when full. As you pick it up, it feels sturdy and when you open it, and subsequently securely clip it closed again you hear a reassuring vacuum noise from the neoprene seal embedded in the lid.
It seems crazy to spend money on great tea. only to have it go stale quicker due to poor storage. We wanted to preserve the teas full taste and all the beneficial properties as long as possible, and in this caddy we have achieved that. You will notice the difference of freshness in your tea even after only a few weeks, with every spoonful absolutely as good as the first
Don’t take our word for it we offer a full refund if you are dissatisfied in anyway.
We love tea ! if you don’t buy this caddy perhaps think about how you could store your tea better.

Good quality and easy to open and close. It is too early for me to comment on how well it keeps the tea. If it works well I hope to get several.
I purchased two of these tins to store my Imperial Yunnan in and I’m very happy with them. Good quality and understated design which will work anywhere. I may well buy some more as they are nice in use, durable and well priced.
I love these retro modern tea caddies. I already had a couple at home, but they work so well, that I invested in a couple more to enhance the look for my kitchen.
As we had been using these excellent containers for various varieties of tea for a couple of years. I immediately thought of these for keeping large packets of spices in as they give an air tight seal and keep the contents fresh. They arrived promptly and have been in use every since.
I bought some of these before and found them very useful for my husband's tea. I've now bought some more to use for various other items, like flax seeds. They have a very satisfying mechanism for keeping themselves closed and also loo elegant on our shelves.
Not only that but they arrived sooner than I was expecting. I think some of the packaging was plastic, so my only suggestion for an improvement would be to use something more planet friendly for that.
