Our porcelain Lotus Flower Tea Canister is the perfect storage container for keeping your artisan whole leaf tea fresh and for prolonging its life by keeping away air, light, odor, and moisture. The lid has a rubber seal that ensures an air-tight seal. The beautiful hand-painted motif depicts a lotus flower which symbolizes enlightenment, purification and faithfulness in Asian culture. The blue lotus flower as we have here refers to the common sense; it uses wisdom and logic to create enlightenment. A closed lotus flower represents the time before a Buddhist follower found Buddha or enlightenment. A lotus flower fully bloomed and open represents full enlightenment and self-awareness. Dimension: 4" ht x 3.5" dia.
