To ensure that you preserve the taste and health benefits of loose leaf tea, make sure you store them properly. Here are a few ways to store your favorite loose leaf tea:
A high quality container: The best container for loose leaf tea is made of metal, ceramic, or wood and air-tight. (Like our award-winning Tiesta Tea tins!)
Avoid heat and direct sunlight. Heat sources (e.g. near the stove) and sunlight will increase the temperature inside the container, which in turns cause moisture issues.
Don’t store loose leaf tea in the refrigerator. The change in temperature can cause moisture to seep into your tea container. You wouldn’t want soggy tea leaves, would you?
