Where did tea chest originate?
The use of a wood tea chest dates back to the early 17th century when tea, in industrial amounts, made its journey throughout the transatlantic via ship voyages. The first shipment of tea arrived in Amsterdam in 1606. The first tea chest is cube-shaped. The tea chest size measures 9 inches per side. It appeared to be most likely made in Japan, but the artwork illustrated on the first tea chest was interpreted as an Indian and Chinese design. Since then, tea chests are made to ship tea to the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. Putting tea packs in a tea chest has evolved as the years went by. It not only holds the teas for shipment but also makes a lovely gift presentation and a storage container for tea sachets nowadays.
Why is it called a tea chest?
It is known that a locked box containing prized items is called a chest. With tea shipments traveling through oceans and seas in the old world, it was expected to encounter rough waters during the transit. The tea chest is a wooden container, also called a tea caddy, to protect the tea packets from tossing back and forth as tea was considered a valuable commodity product. Older tea chests were secured by metal fasteners and locked to prevent the ship's crew to consume the tea cargo during the journey.
What are tea chest boxes?
The tea chest boxes intend to hold the precious tea cargo to transport this healthy, therapeutic, and sophisticated drink to different destinations via sea voyage. These boxes were made in full wooden panels back in the olden days. Now, these tea boxes feature storage chests with clear sides that are usually acrylic in material.
