Tip# 2 – Avoid Light and Moisture
Light and moisture are a tea's worst nightmare. The best place to keep most teas is simply in a kitchen cupboard, in any type of resealable, light-proof, non-plastic container.

Air tight containers such as tins and aluminium food safe bags are best for keeping tea from fading due to light and clumping due to moisture.
