Storing loose leaf tea
I know that is should be stored in an airtight container and also away from light, but I am also wondering if, like other things, it should be kept away from heat. My guess is that it should be stored in a cool place.
With that in mind, here is my question. Is the freezer too cold of a place to keep loose leaf tea? I have some airtight containers that hold about 2 or 3 oz. of leaves, but I want to buy 6oz. or so. Can I keep what does not fit in the containers in the freezer like I do with my spices or and I better off keeping it in a cabinet downstairs in the cool dark?
