Besides enamel and porcelain jars that I bought recently, I also got these clay pots recently, reddish clay and more porous than enamel and ceramic, which I will use to store older teas . The pots are new and have no smells.
But the choice of storage would stil be large yixing pots, which are hard to come by.
There are also a cheaper alternative, ie metal containers that I use for storing older tea to retain the taste and flavour - an advice from a tea vendor as he does not want the tea to change it's flavour and taste and become unsaleable later on.

sung8891, are the pots you have similar to this?

My storage is pretty stable even in winter , yesterday I've done some measurements and humidity is around 80-81% and temperature around 20-22 C as you can see on the picture .
Left digital hygrometer sits on middle shelf and on right is analog one just brought in for comparison reasons and it shows humidity outside of my storage room.
No artificial humidification, flavor enhancers or high fructose corn syrup used :)
Hygrometers salt/water mixture calibrated . Extech professional hygrometer used as reference measurement device. No mold accidents so far.
