Happy Wednesday Friends!
A little #wednesdaywisdom for you! Know your tea before you pour your tea. Take care and you will delight in the delicate flavours.
You’ve spent your hard-earned 💵 and bought high quality teas. You want them to stay and taste fresh.
A few helpful tips to keep your tea tasting yummy! 😋
Tea will last a long time if you store it properly. It can be savoured for 6 months to a few years, depending on your choice. Some teas improve with age. Tea flavours change over time and require different storage types.
Store your tea in a dark location. Light, especially sunlight, will damage it. When you choose your preferred teabox, tin or canister, ensure it’s opaque. This will keep your teas from losing flavour, become discoloured or tasting bitter.
Store your tea in a dry location; this ensures mold doesn't set in. Avoid storing where condensation occurs; your basement or cellar. 🚽 🛁 😂 Funny, not funny! Your kitchen also produces humidity and storing your teas on a raised shelf isn’t good as heat rises.
It’s been debated whether to store tea in your fridge or freezer. If you decide to, ensure you vacuum seal it, which removes oxygen and avoids moisture build-up. You want to keep your costly, precious loose leaf teas fresh.
Ensure you use an airtight container so your tea flavours are preserved. The flavour will last longer and airflow won’t diminish it. When storing loose leaf teas, consider teabags, coffee beans and spices, as these also lose their delicate aromas and flavours, when exposed to moisture and light.
7 reasons your tea tastes yucky and goes rancid:
