Tea Storage

The worst thing for tea is exposure to heat or moisture, so always store your tea in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight (it is also a great idea to store your tea in the fridge). 
As tea absorbs other aromas easily, keep it well away from strong-smelling foods and beverages and store individual teas in sealed tins, airtight if possible. 
When making tea, always use a spoon to get your tea, not your hand.  Follow the above storage instructions and most teas will remain fresh and full of flavour for at least 12 months.
