I have one I have never used.

I was thinking of keeping the tea in its original pouch but just open on the end, then putting that in the plastic sealing material.

What do you think?

We use our vacuum sealer all the time...for food, that is. They work extremely well. We use them for everything--raw food, cooked food in the freezer, keeping nuts, grains, etc., fresh. I never thought to use it for tea. I think it would work very well.

Clear plastic does breath. Is your heat sealer compatable with the foil of the original bags for instance. That is much less gas permeable.

What is the purpose of roasting and how is it done?
