Share how you Store and Organize your teas.

I finally organized many of my teas in these white lidded bins from Ikea. They glide out nicely, and look much better than the mix of cardboard and bamboo boxes I was using before.

I'm new to tea and have so far only been ordering samples and small quantities (1-2 oz) of the teas I find that I like. I'm currently just using a gallon sized zip-lock bag for storage. As my tea collection grows I know I'll need a better solution so I'm hoping to see more good ideas in this thread to give me some ideas.

Those look beautiful. Are they organized by the types of tea?

I use those 45 quart clear plastic totes from Costco. At $15/3 I'm happy.

They are organized mostly by vendor, and then a few smaller ones by type of tea.

I could do with some inspiration with tea storage. Luckily I have a whole cupboard to store them, but many types of tea.

Currently using Chinese takeaway tubs for packets, but I have tins on the top shelf. It gets messy quite quickly. I would like to organise it so people can just help themselves to whatever they fancy.

The tins by the kettle are our everyday blend.

In my rented upstairs house, 23 years ago, I found two hanging kitchen cabinets. Each kitchen cupboard has three levels.

The right one I use for rice, noodles, spices, products like peanut butter, honey and the like, salt, oat flakes, millet. And so on.

The left one is for tea.

On the bottom floor of the tea cupboard are 5 herbal teas that I mostly collect myself in nature and in my micro garden. Mint and lemon balm come from my micro garden.

On the middle floor are 10 green teas.

On the top floor, there are 10 teas from the group black, oolong and white.

I work with a cycle of 30 teas.

Which 30 are in turn is determined from an Excel file called "Tea".

The teas I have the most of are the most consumed. The 30 are active, the rest are on call. (In the bedroom).

The herbal teas are all used twice a cycle (because there are five of them): one third of all the teas I drink are herbal teas, one third are green and one third are either black, oolong or white.

In short: what I have the most of, I consume the most. But in the ratio of one third, one third, one third.

Computer-controlled tea drinking. (The moments of tea drinking are also computer-controlled, but not too strict, of course).

debunix that is brilliant! I wish I thought of this before I was made redundant! I don't think my partner would approve of a filling cabinet in the kitchen :lol:

I have boxes on the tea....thing....for the currently open teas, classified a little less rigorously than those in my file drawer because I have only 4 of the boxes.
