We recommend keeping our green tea in its original packaging, which we fill with nitrogen to retain the freshness of the leaf. Once opened, the tea will not spoil, but the flavor and aroma will gradually change. Tea can otherwise be stored in a sealed metal or non-reactive ceramic container in a cool, dry place, away from strong smells. Refrigeration can also prolong the life of the tea
If kept in its original packaging and in temperate storage conditions, we suggest consuming the tea within one year of its packaging date.
Keep in mind that organic matcha has a particularly short shelf life. The increased surface-area of the tea powder means that it oxidizes rapidly once the packaging seal is broken and it is exposed to air.
All of our full-leaf tea is grown by farmers in our cooperative and is produced in our factory here in Shizuoka.
