Storing tellicherry peppercorns

My tellicherry peppercorns arrived today, and I'm wondering what's the best way to store them. Is it okay to keep them in the plastic bag or do they need to be stored in an airtight container?

The plastic bag is fine. I store mine in a plastic bottle for convenience only.

Thanks Andy! The Magnum pepper mill arrived too, and I'm looking it forward to trying it.

The bag works. Anything you don't use please feel free to send to me, and I'll store them for you.

I pour mine into a glass jar with a rubber seal, but that's just because it looks pretty.

I put my peppercorns into the fridge the minute I get them home.
I have a drawer dedicated to spices.
Since we end up with fairly large spice bottles (Costco) I just refrigerate them. I even refrigerate the un-opened bottles.

Curious, why do people seem to prefer Tellicherry peppercorns over other kinds?

There are different kinds of peppercorns just as there are different kinds of apples. They have slightly different flavors and aromas.

I haven't sampled different kinds, so I guess it will be an adventure!

To be honest, I don't notice a difference.
