Buy smaller quantities of tea and drink them faster to retain freshness

Keep fresh tea away from air, heat, light, and moisture, each of these will cause the tea to deteriorate

Store the tea in a dark, cool, and dry location. Light and moisture are tea’s biggest enemies as they will activate enzymes that contribute to its decomposition

Keep flavored tea apart from plain varietal or origin (pure) tea, because the flavored tea will flavor all the other teas it is stored next to

Be sure to tightly seal bag or close tin after each use and store with care
