250g Tea Centre Caddy

 

At the time of starting his quaint little shop The Tea Centre of Stockholm in 1979, Vernon Mauris never imagined that his blends would gain such prominence on the Scandinavian market. The very thought of composing blends and exporting them seemed like a distant dream.

 

During the late 1980s, his attention was drawn to classical tea caddies. He had nostalgic childhood memories of Sri Lanka, of his older sister saving her monthly allowance in a small tea container (tea caddy) similar to the one you have here. At the beginning of the 20th century, there were no televisions, radios or billboards to advertise a company’s products. But competition increased as commodities became more easily available. Tin containers became obvious advertising agents, not just for tea but also for soap, tobacco, coffee, cocoa, talcum powder, and biscuits. The tins were used creatively for other purposes after their initial contents had been consumed. This tea caddy is a redesign of the original caddy created for the Tea Centre of Stockholm in 1991.
