Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve been searching for this for months! We love tea and are big tea drinkers but had no system for organizing and storing our tea and it was driving me crazy! I’d been searching for months for some sort of container to store my tea that would take as little room as possible but still be sturdy and functional. A friend recommended this tea bag storage container to me and hallelujah my chaotic tea problem is finally solved! I LOVE this container! I even got another one to separate black and herbal teas. Could not recommend it more!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great container Great for organizing tea bags. I stack them in cupboard and it is easy to see them. I also use some to store my essential oils. They fit the bottles perfectly and can hold 24 bottles. Just have to store it in a dark place for the oils.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive and functional tea storage Effectively reduced the clutter in my cupboard. We enjoy a variety of tea. I was able to remove several partially used tea boxes and store them in this container. The lid fits snugly enough to keep tea fresh and reduce loss of flavor. It is still easy to remove. Appears to be sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy product Easy to see all of your tea bags. Sturdy plastic. I like that the lid can be removed (not hinged). Only drawback is that the width of the partitions are slightly less than most teabags, particularly those bags individually wrapped in a foil package. Found that I had to trim the sides of the packets to make them fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I love how cute and compact this tea holder is. I was tired of all the tea boxes taking up cupboard space for other things that could go in their place, and this was the perfect quick fix. It's pretty to look at, and it fit every single one of my tea flavors, plus sweetener packets, inside. It makes having tea more fun! You can see from the outside which flavor you'd like rather than scrounging through all the boxes on the kitchen shelf until you grab the right one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear storage - see when supply is low! I bought two of these boxes and they stack nicely and keep my drawer neat. My husband even commented on how much better it looked than when I had numerous boxes of tea jumbled in the drawer. I use one box for green and black teas and the other for herbal and decaf varieties.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I really love my new tea organizer. I actually bought two since I have so much tea. It's so nice to be able to pull one out, take off the lid and choose from several types of tea. I had my friends over and offered them tea. They loved my tea organizer too and said they wished they had one. I told them where they could buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tea Containers Right size. Love that it is clear and stackable. Used chalkboard labels and they look great stacked on my counter. Too pretty to put away in a cabinet. Going to order more. Really love these containers. Can be used for more than just tea. Be creative.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tea bags do not fit! I purchased this as a gift for my daughter, but the Bigelow tea bags she uses are too large for the compartments.The compartments should have been made a bit larger. It's useless and must be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solution I bought several of these because several members of our family are tea drinkers and tend to try different flavors. The boxes are clunky and took up lots of space. This holds a significant amount of tea bags, can see what is in the container without opening and can see when it is running low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tea Lover!! FINALLY....Somewhere to put all those tea bags when you are close to being finished with a box!! What a genius idea. Holds a lot, easy to flip thru, and transparent so not an eyesore on the kitchen counter! Way to go Container Store!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical, sturdy tea holder - really useful! I recently purchased this tea holder because I was having to rifle through my many boxes of tea to pick a bag out in the morning - and let's be honest, who has the extra energy to do that while bleary-eyed before 7am? This holder makes it easy to locate the particular one I am after, is practical and slides into the cupboard easily. It's also great when I am having visitors over so they can easily see for themselves what teas I have in stock. Next stop: buying one to keep my teas at work in order!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Container Store Purchase Ever I bought this tea storage container 8 years ago, use it all the time and it still looks and works great. Sturdy materials, and I love that you can see in the box before it's even opened. Looks great when offering tea to guests. I highly recommend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like, but could be better I bought this to organize our tea collection in our pantry. It definitely helped. Here's the problem: In a normal box of tea, there about 20 bags. The compartments in the product only fit about 12 bags So now I have tea boxes in the pantry AND this tea organizer. I was hoping to get rid if tea boxes altogether. Oh well. If they could just make each compartment slightly larger it would be perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Tea"rrific Container I am so thrilled with my two tea bag storage containers. Although I had to wait a few months to receive them because they were on back order (which is a good sign because they are in demand), it was well worth it. I no longer have to rummage through several tea boxes which take up space in my cabinet. Now in an instant I can see the various tea bag flavors and choose one that fits my mood. These containers are well designed, easy to open, compact and overall "tea"rrific!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tea storage This container is great! I had so many tea boxes laying around and now I have them organized in a clear container so I can see them. Love this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Storage This is a great container for all my teas. The nice thing is this stores beautifully inside my basket on the pantry shelf. Since I drink a lot of tea I plan to buy another container since it can stack with my other one. The container is lightweight, easy to open, easy to store and easy to see the flavors of the tea bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I bought one and went back the next day to pick up a second. It was a perfect solution for my cabinet. I can now see my entire tea inventory and it keeps my tea bags that aren't in individual packaging fresh. Can't believe how much clutter it eliminated in my cabinet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for organizing all your teabags! I love the tea bag storage container because you can see your selection and how much of your favorite tea is left. It looks nice when serving guests, too. Now I am better organized by saving space getting rid of all the different boxes tea comes in.

Community Q&A

Has locking system?

I want to store it sideways, will it stay unopened?
Asked by: Neus
The lid does not lock in place, however it does fit securely. I can sit the box on it's side and the lid does not waver, but stays securely in place. It sort of creates it's own little suction for some reason. My daughter prompted me to use these and I just love them !!!

What is the size of this (w, h, d)?

Measurements in description only labeled the H and not the other two measurements.
Asked by: DarDar
The box is 8 1/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches . Height is 3 1/2 inches when I measured my boxes. I see the same posted information in the product description online

Are these containers stackable, should someone need more than one?

Asked by: Rebeccagjp
I stack 2 without any problem. There is not a ridge or anything to lock them into place, but they stack nicely. I have pull out shelves and 2 stacked work perfectly for the distance between by pull-outs. More could be stacked though. It is nice because they are clear and you can easily see the tea bags.

Will foil packs of Bigelow or Twinings fit inside?

Some reviews say no, yet the image shows Bigelow packs fitting nicely. Will they fit without trimming? (It's a non-starter if I have to trim tea bags to fit in a tea bag holder, obviously.) Thanks!
Asked by: EmayPA
I haven't trimmed any tea bags. What I did do was alternate one bag forward, and one bag upside down so I could fit twice as many in each section. My daughter showed me this trick... think about the shape of the tea bag with the bulk and you will understand how alternating one up and one down so to speak will lessen the bottom bulk area and create more of a "spooning effect " !!!!

Is the container airtight?

For teas that come in pillow-style bags without individual wrappers, will this keep bugs out?
Asked by: Thessie
The lid fits very snug and there is a substantial raised lip that the lid sits over. It is Acrylic, so it does not have a "burp" property like "tupperware". I personally have my loose individual tea bags in smaller airtight colorful tins which I label.The organization factor of the little sections of this box is not necessary because they are loose. Hope that is helpful !
