A new, larger tea box is on its way to antfarm on Etsy. This version measures 11.5″ tall and fits up to 50 packaged tea-bags.
The new version uses a modified design, giving more room for reaching into the box to grab a tea bag without needing to open the lid. A rounded door option may be produced, as well as a chalkboard version like previous designs.
I have been experimenting with finishes, and have found that the best finish for this particular wood is a beeswax, carnauba wax, and mineral oil blend that is food-safe and can be wiped down with soap and water. I’m offering a finished version for just a few dollars more, which deepens the birch tones and brings out the subtle sheen of the grain.
(I expect an official post to be created by April 11th, so after that date it’s just a click away.)
If you’d like a more portable version, the original TANNIN tea boxes are available, and hold between 20-24 tea bags, depending on the brand—available with chalkboard doors, and two door shapes.
