I think a smaller food safe plastic bin would be a perfect temporary fix while I look for an armoire or glass solution. I was at first worried about mixing different regions of tea in the same container (since I only have a handful of cakes; not tongs), but I shouldn't worry too much about this, right? I just didn't want all my tea to taste the same, but as long as there's proper ventilation I should probably be alright.
Could I bother you for a snapshot, BioHorn?
Here is my current set-up:
The container is in the basement and covered from light.
Cardboard is not a viable option for our northern conditions. If I were in HK I would certainly take M's advice. (Cloud, I believe, also write up an article on cardboard storage.) Is it standard practice for personal use there?
I sure wish I had a spare corner in HK.
