Tea easily absorbs moisture and odours and so it is essential that it is kept in a cool dry place away from any strong smelling items. It must be stored in an airtight container not exposed to light and used within a reasonable time. Because light breaks down the quality of tea, glass containers are not suitable for the storage of tea unless stored away from light.
Packaging is Important

The process of packaging tea is important because tea that is old or not properly packaged loses its flavour and aroma. Our tea is fresher than most tea brands because it is packed and exported in vacuum sealed foil pouches. Quality teas are packed in different types of packaging/caddies made from tropical hardwoods, metal, papier mache and/or cartons.
