Chinese Tea Tin

Chinese Tea Tin, originally uploaded by mooosh.

I had a jaunt to the Chinese supermarket matthew's on Saturday, where I bought a few things, including this tin of tea.

The tea within smelled horrific and looked like dried slugs, so I threw the tea out and kept the tin, which was always my intention.

I love the iridescent colour of the tin, which is not quite clear from my poor photography. It reminds me of the tea tin my grandad had, which had a little brass shovel for the tea leaves. The smell of tea leaves always brings warm memories of him flooding back.
