Proper Way to Store Tea

Avoiding just five storage conditions will make a huge difference in the shelf life of your tea. These factors are light, heat, moisture, odour and air. Heat also degrades your tea. Avoid placing it in the sun (see also: light) or near heat sources like stoves or ovens. Moisture causes problems, too; tea is shelf stable because it is dry and absorbs water from the air very easily. Until it's ready to brew, keep it away from boiling water. You'll also benefit by avoiding other humid areas, like above a dishwasher vent or in a refrigerator. You won't want to expose your tea to liquid moisture either unless you're brewing it. Odor is something that tea absorbs very easily. This tea trait allows for the creation of amazing scented teas, such as Jasmine Pearls. It also means that storing your tea near a spice cabinet, trashcan or another source of odor is a no-no. Air exposure increases the chances that your tea will absorb moisture and odors. Avoid leaving tea out, sealing it with excess air in the packaging or storing it in porous packaging materials, like paper bags.
