Organize Your Tea Collection with Mason Jars!

ImageMy family enjoys tea.

Cranberry, Raspberry, English, Echinacea, Grapefruit/Starfruit Mix, Blueberry, Liption Chamomile, Lavendar Chai, Apple-Cinnamon Spice, White Tea with Mint Essence…we love’em all! We all have different tastes and preferences, and our collection shows it.

The downside to having such a large collection is storage space. So far the best we’ve done is just throwing the boxes in there and shoving it where it’ll fit. It’s worked..kind of. Its ineffectiveness shows whenever we try to dig out a favorite blend that’s been buried somewhere. (Sometimes to only find an empty box that’s just been sitting in there looking pretty. Surprise!)

As an avid Pinterester, I’m always up on the latest trends. Mason jar crafts typically show up. The most recent one I’ve spotted is organizing your tea bags in mason jars!

It’s so cute! It’s so conveient! It’s a “Why didn’t I think of that?!” idea!

I pinned this about 9 days ago. I’ve mentioned it to Dad a couple times, and after a few failed attempts at getting the equipment, we finally managed to get our hands on some extra mason jars, and started the project!

How To

This is so easy to do! All you gotta do is;

  • Take your tea bags, and place them in the Mason Jar. If they’re in a package you may need to remove them so they’ll properly fit. Depending on the size, they’ll fit side to side, or at an angle in two rows.
  • Next, take the tea packaging and choose a section you wish to use as the label. You can choose the title, brand, or picture. Whichever will make it easier to identify what kind of tea it is.
  • Take the lid, trace it around the area you wish to be the label. Cut inside the circle.
  • Fit the label inside the ring, then screw it on the jar.

Wala!

It takes up less space! It looks more organized! It keeps your tea fresh! And it’s so country-cute, which is a bonus. 😉

As you can see in the picture, I’m not quite done. We ran out of jars. But this’ll do for now. It’s already cleared up so much space. I hope to use different sizes to store sugars and even loose leaf tea. I might even experiment with coloring the glass. Creativity!

If you love tea and love mason jars, give this a try!
