This made me finally straighten up my counter space! A lot of my fandom blends had previously been living in an Adagio box on the shelf where they are now neatly lined up. Posting here because adagioteas' submission box does not like me trying to upload more than one photo.
Tins, bagged and loose. The round tins were all originally Irish Breakfast tins. Only the teas that I know I will always replace get a tin because that’s ~50 cups/tin before a new one is empty and I can’t just dump anything into one whenever I want. (I am too cheap to just buy them off the site.) The custom blend labels are just the right height to fit between the bottom edge and the metal band, so I cut them off the empty bag and tape them on. The wire thing is a plate holder whose roundness is an inconvenience for storing square things, but is forgivable because it actually fits under the cabinets, unlike its companion.
Bagged teas, plus Adagio samples and holiday teas. Also, the all-important kettle and a water filter. It really does taste better with filtered water! Plus you are eliminating most if not all of those kettle scales.
The wire shelving was originally meant to go on the kitchen counter, did not fit in my old kitchen, and got hung on the wall (as it was designed to be) in the craft room to hold yarn. In my current flat, by the time I was ready to hang it up I had realized this job/town are not for me and couldn’t be bothered, but isn’t this counter lovely and open and in need of organization?
Opposite these sits the microwave-less microwave cabinet. Top shelf: back row is Sherlock blends, front row is other fandom blends. Beneath are pu-erh and honeybush samplers, plus the kitchen scale I use for measuring when blending (and for yarn!) To the right is non-fandom Adagio.

My stash is actually pretty slim right now (I usually have about twice as much loose leaf) but here’s my tea corner!
I keep my tea in a little storage unit I got from IKEA. Top drawer is loose tea. There’s usually more tins from David’s Tea in there (Sorry Adagio! I love you but please come to Canada!) I try to keep my caffeine free teas together, but that doesn’t always happen…
Second drawer is misc. bagged teas and empty tins and tea stuff.
It’s a bit of a mess haha You can also see my stash of empty fandom blend bags in the corner there.
