Proper storage has everything to do with the flavor and delight that tea offers. Oxygen, moisture and alien aromas are all enemies to the delicate subtleness of tea. Fine tea is especially fragile and can be easily ruined by such elements. It is important to store tea in airtight containers, preferably metal, to protect from exposure to light, humidity and high temperatures. Our signature tightly lidded tea tins are ideal for kitchen storage. Therefore, please do not store tea in the refrigerator or freezer.
