Stale tea is tea devoid of any flavor, color or taste. Without taste and flavor, tea ceases to be a beverage at all. So the first rule of tea storage is not to let it stale, ever. Fresh tea must be kept away from heat, light and moisture for the flavor to be retained.
Light and moisture are two of tea’s biggest enemies, so a dark, cool and dry place are musts for storing tea. A pantry with an automatic light switch and constant temperature is the best place to store tea. Placing tea over a stove or refrigerating it will ruin the tea immediately.
A tin or aluminum airtight container is best when it comes to storing tea. Plastic can transfer an odor and spoil the taste of the tea hence it is not recommended.
