Living in Seattle, coffee and tea, more specifically, loose tea, are a way of life! I am more of a coffee snob myself, but my boyfriend is a big tea fanatic. We usually get all of our loose tea from Market Spice in the Pike Place Market. We have accumulated so many bags of tea, that I decided that we needed a better way to store and access it. To accomplish this, I repurposed some old pasta jars that I hadn't recycled yet.
To start, I bought chalkboard tags, a chalk marker, and twine from Michael's. Next, to clean the jars, I used goo-gone to remove the labels and washed them. Once the jars are clean, fill the jars with the loose tea, fill out a tag, and tie it around the mouth of the jar! This is a super easy project that makes for a nice way to store tea, and add a nice piece of décor to your kitchen!
