    Be smarter than the tins!

    I love these tea tins.

    I notice a lot of mixed reviews and I hope the people who wrote them come back to read a few solutions.

    If you have high citrus teas the citrus makes the rubber swell and the lids are extremely difficult at the least to get off, if you get them off at all. To counteract this you can cut a small triangle out of the rubber on the lid so that when they swell they will not be hard to get off, or back on. The staff at teavana can show you how if you need some on how to cut a triangle. It's easy, just cut up diagonal from the bottom to form a small triangle.

    Also, if you wish to not cut the rubber you can just hold the tin where your thumb is along the seam at the top and gently push in so it relieves some of the pressure inside and the lid will pop off easier.

    Once you learn how to be smarter than the tins you will love using them as they keep the tea much fresher than anything else around. Light tight and air tight are the best and these tins offer them both!

    I love the canister and how fresh it keeps my tea but it's almost impossible to open when you close it all the way. I have to leave it partially opened (which I think might impact the freshness) or I have a hard time opening it when I need it.

    The 1 lb tin does not hold 1 lb of tea

    By Brender

    from Tampa, FL

    The tin is easy to open and easy to fill. It seems like it'll keep my tea fresh for a good amount of time. The only problem? I purchased the 1 lb, yet I could only fit 10 oz in it.

          This jar won't open. I don't I'm ever buying from teavana again if I CAN'T OPEN THE JAR TO GET TO THE TEA. This needs to be fixed now, it's incredibly frustrating

                    I really enjoy these tins. I have never had an issue with opening them. I love how fresh it keeps the teas- you can really tell because there is no scent in the cabinet that I store them in and as soon as I open the tin its such a delight. They really are air tight. I have a few teas that have some citrus in them, but I don't think it is enough to warrant the citrus tin. These stay sealed, don't pop open over time. They are very well made. When I purchase a tea I always get the tins. It is worth it in my opinion!

                    Solution to opening the tin container

                          I tried opening my tin (small container) and couldn't get it opened. I used the hugging method and also tried to pry it open. Nothing worked... then my 75 year old mother suggested that I run the tin under hot water. I held it on its side and ran hot tap water over it and voila - I was able to open the tin without difficulty!!

                          This tea cannister is on the lower end of the pricing spectrum. You get what you pay for. So, if your going to need the cannister for a period of time, spend more money on a better one.

                                I usually just buy tea bags, but this time I loved the tea from Teavana and decided to splurge. I bought the canister on recommendation by the clerk. First time it was hard to open, but did get it open. Second time it took me about 20 minutes. I have tendonitis and this is not the tin for me to use, my wrists were hurting so bad I ended up in braces the rest of the day! I did do the hug method, have always done that... not working. I transferred tea to a different container so I dont get hurt the next time I want to relax with a cuppa tea!

                                      The salesgirl sold me some citrus tea and then sold me a tin that is apparently not mean to be used with citrus tea, as I have discovered from reading other reviews. Disappointing, since I've been wanting a good tin to keep my tea fresh. I'm fairly certain orange blossom goes under the citrus category. The salesgirl added this one on, and I bought it on a whim on her recommendation, so I don't know why she didn't offer me one suitable for my tea. I'll be returning it.

                                      Today I went to make a cup of Citrus Lavender Sage, but unfortunately I could not get the tin open at all. I tried various suggestions (including the hug the tin method, and using a rubber jar opener) with no luck. When I bought this tea I made over $100 worth in my purchase, so I don't understand why the woman at the store didn't put my tea in a proper CITRUS TEA TIN. I mean, come on... CITRUS is right there in the name of the tea. Did she really think I wasn't going to want to spend the whopping 50 cents extra for the correct tin?
                                      This tin works as long as you don't have a tea with any kind of citrus in it. I was able to open a tin with another tea just fine. Today I will be calling the Teavana store I purchased from and speaking to a manager.
