      I store my tea in these containers no matter what. I dont have time for cheap containers which break easily or are so easy to open that a child can easily open it. If the tea is not fresh, then its not tea.

      I imagine you can find cheaper air-tight, opaque tins elsewhere. I was a bit pressured to buy a tin for each kind of tea i bought in-store, but will definitely be buying cheaper tea tins elsewhere. These tins retain the smell of the tea more than I would care for, but I was able to scrub most of the smell out with soap and water. Dry quickly, 'cuz the tins don't seem to like the water that much.

      Just buy it somewhere else!

      I got this and a few of the oval tea tins to store some teas I was trying out... Unless you're planning on buying a lot of one kind of tea (or mixing your teas), don't get this! If you're trying out samples or prefer getting 2oz batches rather than large amounts of multiple kinds, you're better off with a small, cheaper tea tin set from somewhere else. They're also very expensive, and there's probably cheaper versions of this all over the internet. However, if you do buy lots of one kind of tea and replenish it often, this tin will accommodate it well and stores well with other tins of the same kind. But, these always seem retain the scent of the tea stored in it previously (even after washing), and frankly, seem a bit bulky (and pricy) for something that stores some tea.

      Not quite as advertised

          I bought this to hold 8oz. of Earl Grey White tea, and found that with some teas that have particularly large leaves, this will not hold a full 8oz.; more like 6oz. and some change. Other than that, the product does what it's supposed to do: contain tea and keep it clean and fresh.

          It sure isn't air-tight if not BUGPROOF

                I had a few of these tins at the time that I was having trouble with some kind of insect in my flour/similar goods. It involved a lot of throwing things out. I didn't worry about my Teavana tea in a nearby cupboard, because AIRSAFE TINS, RIGHT? I mean, that's what you're paying for, yeah?
                Big mistake. I had to throw away an immensely expensive amount of tea because it had bugs eating it--and I know I hadn't even opened up some of the varieties, so there's no way they could have gotten in that way. I don't know how this happened, but you're definitely better off with the paper bags inside of ziploc bags--the bugs couldn't touch that.

                Best Uses

                  These tins work pretty great. Except, I noticed some of my lids starting expanding making it difficult to put back on the container. I found this only happened to teas that had citrus fruits in them. My only gripe is they really should make their container hold any tea that you buy from them.

                        I almost spilled the tea out trying to get the lid off a few times, that's my only complaint. Otherwise I do like the container and the fact that it has the tea info listed for convenience.

                          This tin is just great. I got one of these with my first purchase of tea at Teavana and I can find almost no faults. I do sometimes have a little trouble opening it, but my overly-sweaty hands are at fault there, not the tin.
                          The tea instruction chart on the back is very helpful and the airtight seal keeps my sencha fresh and yummy.

                              Actually, I would rate these tins 4.5 stars. I own a large, medium, and many small of these tins. This size is my favorite! I love a variety of teas and this size allows me to store my variety of teas separately without overloading my pantry with oversized tins. The only downside I can think of is that the lids are snug sometimes, however, they are air tight and probably should have a tight fit.

                                  These are great tins! The only reason you would have a problem with the lids being too tight is if you put a fruity tea inside (it causes the tin to expand) especially if its a citrus tea. Also if your lid has always been too loose you may have a faulty tin they usually will replace them only 1 out of the 15 or so I have has ever been messed up.
