I am most definitely someone who geeks out a little on tea. Since I don't drink coffee, tea is my hot beverage of choice, whether I need a little nudge from caffeine in the morning or something to calm and soothe me in the afternoon.
Over the years, I have acquired quite the collection. I love to purchase unique blends when traveling, and whenever I stumble into my local tea shop here in New York, planning "just to browse," I always wind up walking out with tea I didn't need (aka all of it).
I've never been quite sure about the best way to take care of my tea when I get it home. Can I just toss it in my pantry and hope that it will last indefinitely?
