I never noticed that. I know I have had some very nice tea from Pushop that was advertised as wet stored or partially wet stored.slurp wrote: "All vintage teas we sell are dry storaged"
The term "wet stored" has a sort of political history of its own. Not too long ago and still today in some circles, "wet stored" just meant bad tea with funky flavors. More recently, people have come to realize that dry stored teas can be sort of forever young and that some of the great pu of the past comes from the humid islands of Taiwan and Hong Kong as well as the humid country of Malaysia.
I suggest that you take either term with a grain of salt. I have come to understand them as relative indicators rather than absolutes, and truth be told we don't know much of anything about the actual storage conditions of what we buy! I doubt that even our vendors know much more than we do. Characteristics we attribute to dry or humid conditions, may actually result form something else.
The first thing to ask isn't whether it is wet or dry stored, but whether it is good tea or not.
