Tea Caddy Tins are where the delights of Leaf Tea begin. They are a gateway of sorts, enabling you to keep up to 100g of your favourite brew. The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company provides Tea Caddies to the UK and beyond. Each one we stock is of the highest quality, sometimes empty for you to fill, sometimes brimming with goodness, ready to make a cuppa.
The history of Tea Caddies dates back many hundreds of years. Its name derives from the word “catty”, a Chinese pound equivalent to 600 grams. This is also the measurement by which Tea was once sold. Caddies held the Tea leaves within, as they still do today. Once made from Chinese porcelain, wood, tortoiseshell, pewter, brass or copper, they’re most commonly created from metal now.
This ever-popular Loose Tea or Tea Bag Caddy will look fantastic on any kitchen counter. Measuring 11.5cm in height and 9cm in width, it is the perfect choice for holding your beloved Tea leaves. It then becomes a question of what particular infusion you’d like to have to hand. Our family-run business stocks around 1,000 types, so it’s fair to say that you have a vast multitude of options.
There is also the possibility of having your Silver Tea Caddy ready-packed with our flagship Pluckley Tea. Alternatively, you could show someone how much you love them with either our Valentine’s Black Tea Love Potion Caddy or Valentine’s Green Tea Love Potion Caddy. The former is a special blend of China Rose Congou Tea with Rose Petals. The latter is a Rose-adorned Green Tea.
