Storing Tea


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’.

Follow this link to our page from the “About Our Tea” section.

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)
