The term caddy is believed to originate from the Chinese word catty, which was a weight measure about the same weight as a pound. Until about 1800 the jars were called "tea canisters" and then the term caddy caught on!
This tea caddy carries on the Chinese tradition of fine, quality ceramics. Caddies were, and still are, air tight to preserve your teas’ precious flavors.
