Organizing loose tea in Weck canning jars will not only keep things functional, but will look pretty too.
Now that the kids are back to school, I’ve been trying to get more organized. It’s a bit difficult while I’m writing my book. There are projects laid out in every corner of my main floor.
To keep me going with the book projects, I drink a lot of tea. I never liked the taste of coffee and have always been a tea drinker so I have quite the stash of tea including a lot of loose tea and they always come in not-so-pretty bags or a mix match of containers.
Weck canning jars come in the cutest sizes and they are the perfect way to organize all my loose tea.
Let me show you how I organized my loose tea in Weck canning jars.
Here is just some of my tea collection. I’m sure everyone has an assortment of tea like me. Sometimes you need caffeine, sometimes you don’t. I love a decaf green tea at night. I have different favorite teas for friends and family that come over. When it comes to tea, everyone has a specific one that they like.
I like to organize my tea bags in pretty containers like the metal chicken feed container and the Kraft cheese box that you see in the image below. Once the loose tea goes in the jars, you’ll need to label it somehow so you know what tea you’ll be drinking.
I brought out my favourite label maker and made sure to use clear tape with black ink.
I initially found some Weck jars at a local cooking shop in various sizes but when I looked online on Amazon I found that they had different lids too!
The wood lids are my favourite! They even have the orange seal attached underneath. There are simple white plastic lids too.
In the image below you can see the three different lids. Weck also has cork lids too.
I think I’m going to buy more wood ones, I initially just bought one to see how it looked. It was pricey for one lid so I wanted to make sure I liked it first.
I have one large (1/2L) Weck jar with my favourite creamy Early grey as I go through that one a lot.
I had some fruity tea on hand that no one in my house liked so I popped a candle on top and the tea acts like a potpourri when the candle is lit.
The jars with the tea look pretty enough to keep on the counter now.
I hope I’ve inspired you today!
