Does Tea Go Bad?
Most of our teas have a shelf life of 2 years. Dry tea leaves that are kept dry will not spoil or go bad, but will simply lose flavor and aroma after the best by date.
Most* tea leaves are best kept away from light, air, and moisture.
*A note on pu-erh storage: unlike most tea, pu-erh improves with age and may be enjoyed for years. For best results, we recommend storing pu-erh in a cool, dry place that is temperature controlled. Read more about pu-erh here.
