Tea Storage

Storing your tea

Less vulnerable than coffee, tea should however be carefully stored to preserve its original flavor for as long as possible and thus increase your chances of enjoying it at its best. Well stored, tea can be kept in average between one to three years under good conditions. Contrary to wine, tea rarely gets better with age except for Pu-Erh teas. Here are some tips to store your tea in the best conditions:

Protect your tea from air, light, heat, odors and moisture

Keeping your tea away from these five elements is crucial to avoid a loss or change in your tea’s flavor. By using the right container such as a tea tin, caddy or a plastic bag, as shown on the picture on the right, it will prevent this from happening. Also, it is recommended to put these containers in cool, dry places away from any heat.

Avoid using clear, non-opaque containers as it increases the risks to be exposed to light. When reusing the same container, make sure to wash it well as it could affect other teas. Do not store your tea in the refrigerator or freezer, except for green tea. Although each tea has a different shelf-life and can stay fresh for up to a year, it is best to consume it within 6 to 12 months following the purchase.
