Tea is a fragrant drink that is very much appreciated in Japan, and the Japanese pay particular attention to the proper storage of their tea leaves. In order to store your tea in the best possible conditions, our shop proposes you all kinds of hermetic Japanese tea caddies, made of metal or washi paper.

A Japanese tea canister to preserve the flavors of your favorite tea

The tea ceremony, Chanoyu in Japanese, is quite an art in Japan. Moreover, tea is considered as a delicate, precious and refined product, which is why it is very important to know how to preserve it in order to keep all its aromas and flavors.

Tea cannot go out of date but it can be damaged, so some precautions must be taken to ensure good conservation of these leaves. It is necessary to store bulk tea in airtight and opaque tea boxes. Tea is sensitive to light, heat, humidity and strong odors. Exposing it to air and light could oxidize the leaves and thus diminish the aromas they contain. If exposed to moisture, the leaves may become moldy. If you store your tea in the kitchen, avoid humid places, heat sources (hot plate, in the sun...) and spices or other foods that give off odors and could permeate the tea.

What type of Japanese tea caddy to choose?

Generally, green teas are best consumed within 12 months after plucking. For an excellent preservation of your tea, it is recommended to store it in metal tea tins, if possible with a double lid. These airtight tins will protect your tea from light, humidity and odors. Japanese washi paper tea boxes also make perfect containers for your bulk tea. In addition to this aspect of preservation of aromas and flavors, tea boxes are often very pretty, decorated with Japanese patterns to bring a colorful Japanese touch to your kitchen decor. Nothing but positive things.

A little tip to preserve your purchased bulk tea even longer:

If you buy your tea in bulk in large quantities, you can divide it into several small boxes to limit the oxidation due to the contact of air each time you open the box.
