I think with the right humidity percentage, tea will age. How it compares to tea that is allowed to breathe would make for an interesting comparison!
Perhaps she did the right thing then! Except for the old pickle jar part. And she put one jar in the refrigerator and one in a cabinet. I tasted the cabinet jar. I'm gifting her a ginger jar to use if she wants. :D
I have some loose lao cha tou in a ginger jar with a loose fitting lid!

Dry storage started in Hong Kong, which is hot and humid for much of the year. I know it sounds funny, but humid dry storage is very different from dryer dry storage! :lol: 91 degrees F and 75% humidity today.

Good and expensive aged sheng...in an old pickle jar...in the refrigerator...

It is time you relieved her of all her tea rather than gifted her something :)

While humid dry may sound oxymoronic, clearly it cannot be a discrete jump from dry to wet storage - so I suppose "humid dry" is as good a term as any to describe the in-between storage.

Yes that's what I was thinking. It's like North-North-West!
