My Fridge Stinks or Storing Tea and Food Odours

I'm sure this has come up before but I couldn't find a definitive answer.

I'm well aware that tea will absorb strong odours and what not, and I keep my unopened (still sealed) packets in a separate compartment at the bottom of the fridge.

Currently there are a ton of strawberries in the fridge too, and having gone to get a new packet of tea, I've noticed that there's a very strong smell of over-ripe strawberries and the packaging of the tea smells of it too.

Considering that all these packets are still sealed and that four of the five are vacuum sealed, how likely is it that the strawberry smell will affect the tea itself or will the packaging keep it at bay?

I'm preparing to be annoyed because I have four packets of shincha in there...

Ouch... I hope for the best, Pig Hog. Personally, I would not put my tea in the fridge. I have too many strong odored things like fish sauce and kimchi floating around that surely would not be good for my tea. :shock:

I've left them out with the hope that the smell will dissipate but as of this morning, the packaging still smells of strawberry.

At roughly £40 worth of tea, I'll be really annoyed if they've been ruined.
