Dry storage in Kunming, Yunnan, which has gained a good rep in China, averages at a relative humidity of about 60 at a temperature of about 20°C on average.
Kunming storage may have a decent rep in China, but some of us here in the US aren't terribly fond of it. Giving it the moniker Kunming Cryostasis, tea ages very slowly compared to dry stored HK tea, or even someplace like Jing Hong (which is dry compared to HK). And most cities in the US make Kunming look like the Amazon Jungle.
