Wildlife in Africa is the theme for these two beautiful tea tins. Choose from a tan, gold, and brown tin of Africans and animals on the savannah, or a burnished red and black tin with gold-adorned elephants. Each screw-top tin holds 4.4 oz (125g) of most teas. Pair these tins with any of our caffeine-free South African Rooibos infusions, or our newest tea from Africa: Black Leopard black tea by Mariage Frères.

    • Dimensions: approx. 4.5" high x 3" in diameter.
    • When tea first came to Europe from China, the first tea container was made of blue and white porcelain in the shape of a ginger jar.
    • It wasn’t until the price of tea became affordable to the middle class in the mid-19th Century (and the Industrial Revolution began mass-producing storage tins) that tea came to be sold and stored in tins.
