Wartime Vintage Tea Rations Tin

Wartime Vintage Tea Rations Tin

$14.98
Teatime on the British home front became even more important during wartime, when the comforting tradition helped people keep calm and carry on. Citizens stood in long lines for their precious tea, and kept it safe and fresh at home in tightly sealed tins. You don’t have to stand in line today to boost your morale with the same kind of tea—pure Ceylon Tea packed in Sri Lanka and imported to the UK. Each collectable, reusable tin holds 40 teabags.

Nice Item
Who wouldn't want an old school looking tea tin for their kitchen counter? So cool I bought one as a gift and one for me. The tea was pretty good too. :)

tea-riffic!
I really like the tin. It's very nostalgic. It reminds me of my English Granny's kitchen.

Wonderful tea
While I bought this primarily for the tin (mine looks exactly like the photo) I was surprised by the quality and quantity of the tea. It's really a greater value than expected.

Photo not representative of the actual item
The photo of this product shows a tin that has a distressed, vintage look. The tin I received does not have the same paint finish and just looks as though someone did not know how to apply the finish. It is yellow over the entire surface, and finish has none of the white-washing seen in the photo. Additionally, the tea was open inside the tin so I do not expect it to be pleasant at all.

Oh, it has tea bags in it?
I actually purchased this product, a reproduction of a WWI period tea ration box, for keeping loose tea on a tea station. As an historian, I wanted something to honour the events and sacrifices of 100 years ago. I actually hadn't noticed that it came with 40 English Breakfast tea bags when I purchased it. None the less, the tin itself was well worth the purchase price. It is a well made and attractive quality product that will give years of good service keeping my loose tea fresh and my tea station tidy.
