Proper storage method

lease store your tea at room temperature in a place where the temperature stays constant.
The flavor and aroma can be impacted by humidity, direct sunlight and air flow- causing an unfortunate
loss of tannins and vitamins.

After each use, please seal the package tightly
and return it safely to its place in storage.
Taking these simple steps will help to protect your tea leaves by preserving their original flavor and aroma.
