Not too long ago, tea was packed only in Tea Chests. Alas, like so many things, this wonderful item is quickly becoming an antique. Thanks to vacuum packing, triple-insulated paper sacks and other more efficient ways of packaging, tea chests are now to be treasured. Even Makaibari Estate which, until very recently, only used chests now uses them just for its most prized offerings, such as Silver Tips. Here are two of our famous tea chests being displayed by Honest Tea at one of their recent outdoor events. A tip for our other wholesale customers who have the good fortune to possess a chest - keep them close! They are a rarity.
