Taking care of Matcha is very simple. Un-opened, Matcha will stay fresh up to 1 year. However, we don’t recommend trying to start a collection of vintages. Because you’ll want to enjoy your Matcha right after purchase, just make sure you put your tin in your refrigerator immediately after appreciating the sights, smells, and process of preparing your tea. We personally put our little collection of tins (all four grades) in a Ziplock bag to further prevent any chance of condensation, preserve flavor, and protect it from the elements. Plus, it’ll be an easy reach in the morning when you go looking for breakfast.
Enjoy Matcha often. Our tea’s fine flavors will be best discernable up to 2 months, so it’s best consumed very quickly. No need to toss the tea after that – it will still taste good and be good for you. But because of how quality our tea is, the difference we’re looking at here is our Matcha tasting good, versus our Matcha tasting great.
So, please refrigerate. Thank you!
