I ordered this to put green tea bags in, as I have different tins for all my tea's and didnt have one for green tea, which my son has taken a recent liking to. I was expecting a small tin, but this is a good sized tin, into which I managed to fit 3 boxes of green tea bags! I was very impressed! Not only it is extremely well made, it also has lovely vintage artwork all the way around, and a sturdy handle to pull the lid off with. Very nice tin - you will not be disappointed.
