Careful storing of your teas are important to keep quality loss to a minimum. Here are a few guidelines:

  • Keep away from sunlight and heat. Tea should be stored in a cool, dark place.
  • Keep tea packaged in small quantities as dampness (e.g. steam) can damage it while you are measuring out.

It is also important to know that each type of tea has a different shelf life. The taste of the Green tea begin to deteriorate within a year while Oolong teas can be stored for several years with little loss of quality.
