Update:29 Apr 2022

  How should I store the chunmee green tea? The editor will introduce to you five key points of the storage method of chunmee green tea.

  Avoid getting wet

  In general, most teas have strong hygroscopicity and dampness. When storing, the relative humidity is more suitable at 60%. If it exceeds 70%, mildew will occur due to moisture absorption, and then acidification will deteriorate.

  Especially on cloudy and rainy days, remember to seal the tea bags tightly to avoid moisture.

  Avoid high temperature

  Chunmee green tea is more suitable for low-temperature storage. If the temperature is too high, the amino acids, sugars, vitamins, and aromatic substances in the tea will be decomposed and destroyed, which will reduce the quality, aroma, and taste.

  Do not keep tea leaves beside the kettle for a long time.

  Avoid sunlight

  Sunlight will promote the oxidation of chunmee green tea pigments and esters and can decompose chlorophyll into pheophytin, which will deteriorate the quality of chunmee green tea leaves.

  Therefore, tea leaves are generally stored in aluminum bags or cowhide bags.

  Avoid oxygen

  Chlorophyll, aldehydes, esters, vitamin C, etc. in chunmee green tea are easily combined with oxygen in the air. The oxidized chunmee green tea will make the color of chunmee green torn and darker, and the nutritional value will be greatly reduced.

  Therefore, every time you take tea and drink tea, do not seal the seal first.

  In addition, if you want to store it for a long time, you can also add a layer of airtight plastic bags on top of our tea bags, and then put them in the refrigerator. This will keep it for the previous year.
