How do you store your white tea? Are tins the best way to store it? Plastic? Metal?
I store mine in air-tight tins that don't let air or light in. My tins have a rubber seal on the top in addition to being tins. I believe tea can last at least a year in the right container... but like Olive Oil can go rancid, tea can obviously go stale... so, I'd keep it out of light and I wouldn't let it get hit by oxygen too often.
