Tea Storage

Hubby and I have been looking on ebay to find a wooden storage unit with drawers.  We finally found one at an antique store, and the drawers are perfect for storing all the tea we drink here.  This was another great find on our recent getaway.


The cabinet appears to be made by hand, using recycled wood.  I am so excited we found this.  It proves that patience is a virtue.  

I still have a few items on my "wish" list, but will continue to search out antique and thrift stores.

does it preserve the tea better?

Pat, I found ceramic ones, but they were $135 and too expensive. I just loved this one.
