Properly storing tea is simple but essential in order to maintain optimal quality of this carefully crafted product. This is why we package all of our teas in vacuum sealed bags in an effort to preserve the tea leaves as they were originally produced.
These basic tips will help you keep your tea at maximum freshness:
- No Air. Always keep your tea leaves in an air tight container with the least amount of extra space possible to minimize post oxidation.
- No Light. Keep your tea leaves in an opaque container to avoid exposure to light.
- No Moisture. It is very important to keep your tea leaves in a moisture-free environment.
- No Heat. Like most dried goods, tea leaves should be kept in a cool dry place for maximum preservation.
