Every tea enthusiast craves for a cup of garden fresh tea. However, with time, the taste and quality of tea can deteriorate if it is exposed to moisture and heat. This creates a space for one of the most common questions that people ask – For how long can tea be stored? We, at Goodwyn Tea, decided to make our own enquiry into this agenda.
As per our findings, when you buy loose tea bags, it can be stored in between 6 to 12 months. But that’s not all folks! Tea enthusiasts from around the world have been helping people to keep their tea in the freshest of conditions with aid of some storage guidelines.
Tips for storing tea for a longer period:
#1 – Use Tin or Aluminium Containers
The foremost requirement is to get a tin or aluminium container to store your favourite tea. This will protect the tea from moisture. Most people use plastic containers, but then it has a tendency to pass on its odour and spoil the original taste of tea.
#2 - Cool, Dark and Dry Place
The secret to an amazing cup of tea is good quality tea leaves. Tea phytochemicals are subject to various reactions when they are exposed to moisture and heat. Not to overlook, the temperature in which the tea is being stored should not be fluctuating. Hence, it is always suggested to use a cool, dark and dry place for storing your tea. By now you might have guessed the place - yes, the pantry!
#3 – Avoid mixing different types of tea
Tea are often graded on the basis of their oxidation level. For example- Darjeeling tea is soothing and less-oxidized, whereas Assam tea is strong and oxidized. Keeping both in the same container (but in different compartments) is definitely going to ruin your experience. It is always advised to keep one tea away from the other.
When it comes to buyer’s choice, they are more interested in tea that has a pleasant aroma and a mystic taste. When you buy loose tea bags from Goodwyn Tea it is more than just a product.
