Boxes and Tins of Tea

Boxes and tins of tea are so pretty and colorful!  I keep an eye open for the interesting ones.  Here are a few I've found...

Two spellings for tea, depending on which side of the tin you show. 
From Turkuaz in my beloved B-town.

An overwhelming number of choices at an Asian market

A marketing/art department with a sense of humor.
Found along the Oregon coast.

It is fun to enjoy the wide array of boxes and tins for tea. I save some of them, but didn't realize I actually have a collection of tins. Now they are all together enjoying each others company. I wasn't purposely collecting, but just couldn't bear to throw them away. I guess we could just enjoy them on the store shelves. Very pretty.

I can't imagine trying to pick just one tea in that Asian market. Be A Better Parent tea, Erase Your Past tea - hmmmmm.

What a fun post and nice photos.

I've tried that tea in your first picture: My Review of Çaykur Earl Grey Tea. It's a loose Earl Grey from Turkey.

It's not bad, especially given how inexpensive it is. It was the first (and so far, only) tea I have tried from Turkey.
