Thankful this tea is back in my life! I was glad when Frank said he would reblend it if I purchased a pound. Well Happy Valentine’s Day to me! (LOL) I ordered the pound and it arrived yesterday! WOW this was the first time I ever got a pound of tea at one tea (at least of one particular kind- That’s a lot of tea!!! I am in tea heaven! Thanks again 52TEAS!!!!!!! You are wonderful!!!! I enjoyed a cup of this at work this am!

I buy chai by the pound all the time:)

Kristen

How do you store it? I am looking for a tin/canister to store this pound of tea!

Cofftea

Just in the company packaging.

Kristen

I usually just keep mine in the pouches frank sends them in too but this was just in one huge ziploc bag! Didn’t think it would be good to leave it in that….

Specialty Bottle has a 16oz tin at the bottom of this page: http://www.specialtybottle.com/index.asp?PageAction=Custom&ID=25 , maybe you could split it into a few of those for better storage? (or something similar?)

Kristen

Thanks, I currently separated it into a bunch of different tins but was hoping to find a big one to hold all of it in one tin! Probably should just leave it in the couple tins I have it in. It is super delicious…just want it to stay fresh for awhile…even though I know I will probably drink it up quickly. I already took a stash of it into work :)

Kristen

@ Cofftea just curious… How fast do you go through your pound of chai?

Cofftea

My advice would have been (sorry it stayed in my brain til now lol) is to keep the 2oz packages sealed and away from light and open them only as you need them. I go thru a lb of Tipu’s instant chai in 30-60days depending on how heavy handed I am (it’s usually pretty heavy though lol) and I go thru Frank’s chai in about 42 days.

Kristen, I would have divvied this up into individual pouches, but I actually ended up making more than a pound, and since it was already a bit late, I thought I would just get it out to you.

Kristen

No problem Frank…it is yummy and I am sure I will go through it quickly anyway. I just put it in a bunch of different tins.

Cofftea

Actually I like one massive pouch. I wish Frank’s Chai would come that way.

Bio

Always been a tea drinker but just recently experienced loose leaf teas. LOVE LOVE LOVE actually trying new teas and it has become a bit of an obsession :) I like all types of tea, but I am not a fan of rooibos.
I am mommy to two little princesses who are also starting to love tea….(3 year old and 1 year old-thus my need for caffeine! although they get the non or very low caffeinated teas) And my husband will kill me soon if he keeps getting to the UPS boxes and mail before I do LOL I will have to start shipping it to my work!
