Plus, claim a special discount at Hampton Antiques 

With their exquisite craftsmanship, tea caddies recall an age in which cost was immaterial and elegance and etiquette were everything. Janet Gleeson explores the history of tea and the magnificent receptacles used for storing it over the centuries in the April issue, which is out this week.

To tie in with the feature, Mark Goodger is offering the first 10 people who make purchases worth over £100 at his online shop Hampton Antiques, which has a superb collection of tea caddies, a 20 per cent discount along with a free tin of wax and tickets to antiques fairs he attends. Simply quote 'bbc20' when you reach the checkout.
