All teas should be stored in a tin designed specifically for tea. Air, light and humidity will compromise the integrity of the tea bulb. Maya Luxurious Teas can be stored at room temperature to a slightly cool area. A pantry is an ideal location. They should not be stored in an area where moisture can be introduced into the packaging, such as refrigerators or humid areas in general, as this will compromise the integrity of the tea bulb and affect the quality.
