Tea's enemies are light, moisture and odors. In order to maintain freshness and aromas of a quality tea, one needs to follow some storage rules. Never store tea in a glass or transparent container. Proper tea containers are airtight and opaque. Tea leaves absorb moisture and odor in their environment. Tea containers must be placed in cool environments that are well ventilated and are far from foods with strong odors.
The Tsubaki Japanese tea caddies have a plastic inner lid.
