The size could be larger, especially for the large tea orders. The lid easly comes off and the container could be broken. I like the style. I suggest, for the price, it should be better/tighter when it's closed and the large bags of tea should fix.
My friend bought me this canister and the smaller one. For whatever reason, the lid on the smaller one fit somewhat tighter than this one, but overall the lids are loose. The instructions say not to pick it up by the lid because the container can fall and break and that's definitely true. But you should be able to pick it up by the lid in theory. It should be air tight. The description here says it ensures the contents stay fresh. Tea will not stay fresh if it is not sealed off in an air tight container-- that is a fact. I was really disappointed because I love these jars and the tea looks so nice in them. But I can't understand the laziness of creating such weak lids on something that's for keeping tea fresh.
