Our premium Tea Trekker tea will stay fresh and sound for several weeks to several months in its original packet, depending on the type of tea.
For storage longer than a month we recommend storing your tea in clean, air-tight tins or pottery or glass containers.
We offer a much more in-depth look at tea storage, incuding a breakdown by type of tea, plus a discussion of ‘resting’ and ‘ageing’.
Generally, keep your tea:
in a dry place away from excessive heat, direct light, strong odors
in a cool place but not in the refrigerator or in the freezer
(an exception to this are some Japanese green teas)
