True tea connoisseurs say the best way to enjoy tea is to brew loose-leaf tea. When storing tea, be sure to keep it in airtight containers and away from heat and light. But also make sure to choose the right container. Wooden containers or those with rubber seals can actually impart unpleasant odors into tea leaves. Choose ceramic containers to store your loose-leaf tea so it doesn’t absorb other scents. If you store it this way, the quality should remain consistent over time.
