best loose leaf tea storage containers

The fresher you can keep your loose tea leaf before using it, the better.

Keeping the air out is an incredibly vital factor when selecting loose leaf tea storage containers.

Teabags individually sealed into foil packages do not necessarily need to be stored in an airtight container.

If you store individually sealed and bagged teas, you will probably want something with dividers to consolidate your stash.

What to look for when buying the best leaf tea storage container?

  • Opaque – the loose tea container should be dark or opaque to keep light away. Avoid clear containers for this reason.
  • Airtight – you want to keep odour, humidity, and air away from your loose tea leaf to keep it fresher longer.
  • Size – do not get a bit to lose tea containers since you do not want a lot of air in the container with leaves. Plus, when the container is huge, it becomes difficult to handle.
  • Wide Opening – do not struggle to get loose tea loaf out of the small Opening. You need enough space to spoon out the team from the storage container.

Loose Tea Storage Tips

  • Green tea does not have as long as black tea and oolong tea since they’re less oxidized.
  • Do not store tea in a plastic storage container unless you use a similar one to keep a similar tea every time – the plastic absorbs and releases the smell.
  • It is a fine idea to write down the loose leaf tea purchase date on the container – you will never have to guess if it is old.
  • If your leaf tea comes in a paper bag, store it in a perfect airtight container.
  • Label your containers so you do not have to open them up every time to see what is inside.
