About Food – Vintage Georgian Tea Tins

By the late 1920’s Georgia had become the main supplier of tea for the whole of the Soviet Union and in the subsequent decades production rose to 400,000 tonnes annually. Colorful tins with the description of the tea, its quality and its manufacturer, written in Russian and Georgian languages, kept the tea fresh.
