Storage advice: Store in the foil pouch in the tea tin or transfer to an airtight container, kept in cool dark place.
If storing in the refrigerator/ freezer, pack in small completely airtight packets or jars. Before use, wait for the tea to reach room temperature to prevent any condensation. Each packet should be used within a week after opening.
