Tea has enemies - moisture, odor, and light! In this article we explore how we store our tea and how we ship it to you, in order to maintain ultimate freshness.

Light considerably shortens the life and freshness of loose leaf tea, moisture can dilute flavor through premature oxidation, and certain teas can absorb odors from nearby surroundings.

This is why all of our tea is stored in foil-lined (or laminated), airtight, opaque pouches or sealed metal tins and that is how it comes shipped to you. We are committed to getting you the most original tea from source to your cup.
