Proper storage of tea is very important to retain the aroma, flavour, quality and character of Green or Black Tea. By observing the following guidelines you will be able to enjoy the tea of your choice up to the last few leaves.
Tea should always be stored in a clean airtight container. Ensure that the container is free of any foreign odours as tea is extremely hygroscopic and therefore absorbs external odours. Make sure the container is shut properly every time you make yourself a cuppa.
As a rule do not store tea along with any other pungent groceries or toiletries.
Always remember to use a dry spoon.
At the time of replenishing your tea, make sure that you take the remaining tea at the bottom of the container and replace it on top of the fresh stock.
