The quality of the fabric on these tins is ridiculous. When I received mine, the fabric was already coming loose so that when I accidentally caught at a corner of the fabric covering, pretty much the whole thing came off! I was very, VERY disappointed. The tin itself is nice and I like the double lid aspect, but the quality of the assembly with the fabric was unbelievably bad. This got returned immediately.

Between my sister and myself, we have three of these tins that we bought in the recent sale.
First I bought the white and blue floral pattern for my Peach Momotarou. My sister selected the geometric pattern for her Lavender Dreams white tea, and lastly I bought the navy blue variety for my Darjeeling de Triomphe.
The fabric for these are just lovely - I think it's a great idea to use kimono patterns, since I'm a major Japanese culture enthusiast.
These tins are much easier to open than the generic Teavana tins because the airtight seal is separate from the tin and hasa tab for pulling the seal out.
Another great thing is that the pattern of the fabric on the lid matches the pattern on the tin if you match the seams up: lots of fabric-covered tins don't, and for someone who is picky about aesthetics and details, that makes all the difference in the world.
My only problem is that I would not buy one because I'm one of those people who likes to match their tea with their tin themselves.
This was my first tea tin purchase from Teavana, and while the tin is pretty (white paper with gold designs), my tin was severely dented. I tried to pop the dent out, but it remains, defeating the point of buying a pretty tea canister in the first place.
The tin on the cap is very thin, although the body of the canister is a little more sturdy. I'm hoping that, despite this being a sale item, Customer Service will allow for an exchange -- after all, we don't typically expect to be purchasing damaged items.
On the positive side, the plastic does seem to have a nice seal, so my tea should be relatively protected.
However, until I know if I can return this product, I will have to caution buyers against buying this item (unless you're the gambling type...)

I use it for the sugar. (The unique container makes it unnecessary to read the labels on my other Teavana tins to find the sugar!)
