+I see that I have the option of buying tea in cans or in the high density packets. What is the difference?
If you have bought teas from us before and already have the can, you may want to just buy the tea in a packet to top up your can. We offer a discount on tea bought in packet form. You may also have your own can or storage solution that you would like to use. If that’s the case, you may not need our can and get some savings there.
