I would never throw away tea anyway.

That said, I think 95% or more of green are best when freshest.
So, brilliant aging of the sencha, Augie!!!

"In Europe it is allowed to put an expiry date of 3 years after production on tea". So expiry date does not always guarantee freshnesh of the tea.

I don't like throwing words like that around when discussing teas, stresses me out.
