Storing your Tea
Storing Your Tea
Proper tea storage helps to preserve the flavor and freshness of your tea long after production. While tea does not spoil, as with any consumable product, the sooner it is enjoyed the fresher and more potent it will be. Stored properly, unflavored teas can last up to 18 months. Flavored teas can last up to six months.
Signature Teas recommends storing your tea in airtight containers to ensure longevity and keeping these containers away from heat, moisture and exposure to light. Teas are fragile and can be easily altered by neighboring spices and aromas, so be sure to store them in an area where the leaves cannot be permeated.
