How should I store my loose leaf tea?
Tea does not necessarily “go bad” or spoil, but it can lose its freshness gradually over time. To prevent this from happening, store the tea inside an airtight container in a dry, cool, and dark cupboard or pantry. You can preserve the freshness of your tea by minimizing exposure to heat, light, air and moisture.Interestingly enough, tea absorbs moisture and nearby aromas, so it’s best to stash your teas away from other highly fragrant products like coffee, spices, or herbs. For ultimate freshness, keep your tea leaves inside the resealable bag it comes in. Gently squeeze excess air out of the bag each time you reseal it, and place the bag in a canister or jar to protect it from the elements so it’s as fresh as the day you first receive it!
