The origins of Tea Caddies.
According to legend, the word "caddy" comes from the Malay term "kati". This refers to the unit of weight of about a pound. Apparently this was the standard measure used by traders who bought and sold tea by the kati.
Tea first arrived in England from China in the 17th century and with it came the authentic Chinese porcelain pots known as caddies.

At first, tea was a luxury available only in coffee houses, but in the 18th century, caddy pots for domestic use appeared as people began making tea at home
Tea caddies were seen as a precious possession due to their high status and value. Hence, tea caddies became a popular way to store and protect tea.
