If make up is my lover #1, tea is definitely a close second. I don’t remember the last day I didn’t have a mug of hot tea. I am a self-proclaimed (and the bf agrees) tea-hoarder. However, as my tea collection grew, I was having trouble keeping track because I just piled them all into a drawer. Until I went to Costco one day and bought myself a box of 148 earl grey (not excessive at all), and when I got home I realized it would be the perfect
ghetto homemade tea chest.
As you can see in the picture above, the box is subdivided into 8 compartments, makes it perfect for different kinds of tea. All I did was cut off the lid and ta-da I got myself a tea chest. It’s super helpful for me since now I can see all my tea-bags in a glance, which is good for those groggy morning.
However, this tea storage solution probably won’t work if you use loose leaf tea. I mainly just store my loose leaf tea in a cupboard. Since I’m usually not in a hurry or only half-awake if I ever decide to do that. However, I do have a teaspoon at my “tea-chest” for when I make loose leaf tea for the bf. Which is usually something from David’s Tea.
For fellow tea lovers out there, how do you store your tea?
