01 General Guidelines
The shelf life of a tea depends on the final moisture content of the leaf and if the leaves were oxidized during processing. Green teas have the shortest shelf life of any tea category since their leaves are unoxidized, while black teas and fermented teas can get even better with age. To extend the shelf life of your tea, we recommend storing in an airtight, light proof container, and in a temperature stable place. Our tea pouches have tin tie closures so the pouch can be fastened after opening. Roll the pouch down and remove excess air after each use. We recommend consuming White and Green tea within 1 year of purchasing, while Oolong, Black, and Botanicals should be consumed within 18-24 months.
