Should I Risk This?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been on the lookout lately for some tins to store loose leaf tea in, but all the ones I have been finding are kind of expensive. I went to Sam's Club a few days ago for something unrelated to that, but I ended up finding this gorgeous gift set of tins that would be perfect for storing tea in, and they were heavily discounted since Christmas was over.

Problem is, there were cookies in these tins.

I bought them anyway, hoping that the cookies would be wrapped so I could give the cookies to someone else and keep the tins, and to my delight, they are wrapped! HOWEVER, even though they are sealed in plastic and I see no crumbs in the tin, there's still a cookie smell in there. What do you think? Would you risk it? No crumbs, no foul, right?

I really want to use these for my teas. :(

I would use them. Put them through the diswasher or hand wash them really good and let dry. You could always put the tea in ziploc sandwich bags then store the bags in the tins too.

I agree with Roda. No worries there.
