Our porcelain Lotus Flower Tea Canister is the perfect storage container for keeping your artisan whole leaf tea fresh and for prolonging its shelf-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.
