I know how long I can safely store my blacks and whites, but how long can you store rooibis before it becomes stale ?

Rooibosusa.com gives a time frame of 2-3 years. I can see that--it's not as delicate as tea and because it's all chopped up and packs tighter less air can get to it.
Still, the fresher the better! I wouldn't want to keep it past a year.

i think the year mark is ok, but 2-3 is pretty accurate in my experience. it keeps far better than other teas.
