A lot of Chinese teas seem to come in metal or wood containers (good for gifts I suppose?) and I don't know what to do with them when I've used up all the tea. What can I do with them? I guess they could go with the rest of the recycling. It seems like a big waste to throw them away. I think I would rather just have a foil package.
I have the same feeling about the tins or containers. In my opinion, the paper box can be recycling if you don't use it. However, I'm not sure about metal and wood containers. What I do with unused containers, I would bring them to second-hand stores. It seems many people like to keep containers with oriental design.
