Proper Tea Storage Ensures Optimal Freshness, Benefits And Flavor
Products such as tea infusers make it easy to prepare tea, but how loose leaf tea is stored is just as important. Over time, tea leaves can lose their flavor and essential oils that contain the health benefits.
A tea canister is one of the best storage items, especially for loose leaf teas. The freezer or refrigerator is not a good choice as the cold is better for storing coffee. Decorating the kitchen with tea containers is not a good idea if they are in the wrong place such as near a window full of sunlight or the stove.
The flavors and scents do not hold up well when exposed to heat for long periods of time. If stored in an airtight container, most teas can remain fresh for a year or more. Various containers are sold on the market, from tea tins to tea chests, which often have decorative designs to fit in with the kitchen décor.
It's also important not to put tea near spices, so the spice cabinet is not an option as tea can take on their flavors and smells. If storing it out in the open, also remember that light can have an impact on quality. The proper storage container, therefore, should be opaque so no light gets in. This can mean finding a dark, dry place where no other strong smelling foods or spices are stored. A small closed box will do, but there are many other choices which are more stylish and appropriate.
There are many different types of tins and canisters. These allow for storage of tea in containers with an array of styles. Ceramic canisters are common, while ones made of wood or bark can add to the décor depending on the style of the kitchen especially if tea is used up quickly as these containers are sometimes not airtight. In either case, as long as the tea is kept away from strong smells, light, and heat sources such as the stove, it should retain its original flavor and scent.
Once it is ready to be consumed, the Premium Tea Infuser from Coolahoo will make preparing the tea simple as it consists of an easy to fill and clean basket and handle, so making tea becomes hassle free. Moreover, the fine wire mesh prevents tea sediment from getting into the cup making for a fragrant and tasty brew full of healthy nutrients to be enjoyed.
