Store tea packets in a dark, cool and dry place, ensuring that the packet is zip locked tightly to minimise exposure to air/ light.
Once opened, to ensure that the tea is maintained at the optimal level of freshness - keep them in an air tight container.
Tea absorbs smell from its surroundings so it is advisable to store them in airtight containers, away from strong odours.
