Put a Stop to Tea Box Avalanches Once and for All with This Handy Tea Bag Organizer
Avid tea fans are all too familiar with the avalanche of bags and boxes that opening the tea cabinet or drawer can bring. Despite the pristine order they arrive in, they somehow always get jumbled among the rest of your kitchen goods. To save you from the pain of never being able to find your favorite infusion (or from picking up all your bags off the ground), you can get a simple container that hundreds of reviewers adore.
mDesign's compact tea storage caddy is the storage solution your tea selection is missing, and it happens to be on sale right now. This eight-compartment box is 13 inches long, nearly 6 inches wide, and under 3 inches tall, so it should fit in most cupboards and drawers, though if you like the look of your tea bags, you might want to leave it on the countertop—no more scrounging around the backs of cabinets looking for that last bag. Each holder can house bags, packets of sweetener and honey, or whatever else you wish.
To buy: mDesign Compact Plastic Tea Organizer, $13 (originally $16) at amazon.com
Aside from obvious organization perks, this handy little unit allows for easy access when you have a whole slew of tea drinkers in the house. "Our tea, coffee, and hot cocoa drawer was a mess until we got this little gem," wrote one shopper. "With seven family members and a nanny, it was hard to dig through all the opaque boxes and bags to find decaf for one kid and herbal for another, until this came along. Now we boil water, lift this organizer onto the counter and let everyone choose their preference. It takes very little space but holds an ample amount."
Having a dedicated space to store bags also prevents the common conundrum of boxes taking up cabinet space when they only have one or two tea bags inside. As one relieved reviewer put it, "So glad I don't have a million half-empty tea boxes anymore."
This particular organizing bin is made of hard plastic, which gives it structure (looking at you, tea baskets and baggies) and means it's super easy to clean. And though transparent walls are nice for viewing what's in them, it's also available in charcoal gray and a light gray, too. Customizing the containers to fit your particular collection is a breeze as well: Some reviewers bought two or three to cater to their enviable tea assortments, and others added stick-on labels
