Storing Tea

Compiled from Origins of Chinese Tea and Wine
In order to enjoy the delicate fragrance of tea, it is important that the tea is well-kept. Avoid bulk-buying. That way, you’ll always have fresh tea. Important things to remember about storage:

  1. The container should be made of clay, tin, iron or coloured glass.
  2. Store the container in a dry, ventilated place. Keep it away from humidity, high temperature and sunlight.
  3. Tea absorbs smells easily. As such, it mustn’t be stored together with food or items with strong smells, such as medicine, cigarettes and cosmetics.
  4. Tea of different types and grades shouldn’t be stored together.
