oxygen absorbers

Does anyone know where I can get oxygen absorbers (aside from eating packs of beef jerky for the Keplon that's in each package)? A search on google brought up Keplon's site, but no link to purchasing. I would love to keep my teas fresher, in a way that's more simple than gas flushing!

You can buy some from this site, but they are very expensive:

Thanks, TeaFanatic!

Wow, I don't need a hundred of these! Does anyone want to split the pack and its cost with me? Your share would be $21.56 for 50 absorbers. I'll pay for shipping.

Dejj,
Great alternative to nitrogen flushing. Here is another site...I might contact them tomorrow for a quote...might be cheaper...or might not be. Depending on the outcome, I may be interested.

Safety Central's are 400cc...which is a lot...
Sorbent Systems have more appropriate sizes...looks like I will go with theirs...they are much cheaper too.

I wind up with a lot of Chinese green, and I'd like to keep it fresh throughout the year. Think I'm going to start working with oxygen absorbers.

This has been an informative article: http://learntoprepare.com/using-about-oxygen-absorbers
I think I am going to buy these: http://www.amazon.com/Oxy-Sorb-60-300cc ... B004FRZ7PC

I would appreciate any tips you have on working with oxygen absorbers. My biggest concern so far is keeping unused absorbers isolated. I see Sorbent Systems is usually recommended, but their large "master bag" sizes seem inappropriate for home tea applications.

I think you will really need a pro grade vacuum sealer (chamber type) for a dessicant to really do much good.

That hasn't been my experience using the sorbet systems oxygen absorbers over the last 6-7 years. Has your experience been different?
