The tin has excellent, bright and clear graphics on all 4 sides and the top . Featured is a beautiful Indian girl, standing amongst the tea plants with workers in the background, harvesting the tea leaves. The distant ,snow covered mountains provide a gentle and peaceful backdrop for the artwork. The tin is 5 inches tall and 3 inches square. It has a typical amount of scratches and small dents in the lithographed surface , but nothing objectionable, and overall it is much better than average.

The Reid Murdoch Company, merchandiser of the tea, is an old, well establish American Company. They began business in 1853 in Chicago, where they specialized in providing supplies to wagon trains. In 1871, the Great Chicago fire destroyed their building, but within three weeks they had reestablished their business in a make-shift building. In 1914 Reid Murdoch built a huge one block long building on the north shore of the Chicago River and the building is still there today. In 1945 Consolidated Grocers purchased Reid Murdoch, but the company retained its identity for some time.
