You are most welcome!
And so it goes that I got the bags from Upton. Now the teas are nicely packed and tagged. Of course this applies to the Chinese teas. The Japanese teas are already nicely packed and tagged.
So now the teas, nicely packed and tagged, are sitting on a shelf in the basement. I've heard some people put some teas in a fridge. Are you the right guy to ask about that curious practice and its pros and cons ?
you just went from TeaStorage 101 to graduate level in a single bound!
I do it but I do not recommend it. There are risks involved, that if dealt with, it is beneficial. If I get a 100 gram bag of Japanese tea, I will splity it in half and cold store the reserve while I use the other half.
But a lot of care must be taken!!! I put the tea in Uptons sample tins, place the reserve in one of these which is double lidded,
which are available here in TeaSwap btw,http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=12676
then put it into the TeaFridge.
There is risk involved! But I seem to have it under control.
