I forgot I still had this sample laying around! I got it in a trade about a year ago.

Made the whole baggie in a pot, but unfortunately this leaves weren’t stored in a tin. The tea that resulted was a little weak, but still tasted deliciously like coconut. I miss this tea… one day I’ll make an order at 52 Teas. They’ve always been intriguing to me and spot-on when it comes to flavored teas.

do you normally transfer all of your bagged teas into tins? I wonder if I should start doing that…

Tabby

I do if I have any empty ones lying around. It really does keep them fresher than plastic bags. I dunno about the foil ones, though. They could be better.

ScottTeaMan

if I have a heavy ziploc bag (not clear), say the one the tea came in, I normally do not transfer to a tin. I find that sometimes the tin changes the flavor (due to the alloy maybe). If I don’t consume the tea quickly, I may tranfer to a tin if the tea is almost gone. I generally don’t use tins as much any more.

TeaBrat

I did read somewhere that the tins were supposed to be better than bags I have transferred my expensive teas but I am leaving the other ones where they are now for the time being. Still, it would be sad to see so much tea go stale!

Dinosara

As long as it’s a heavy foil-lined resealable bag (which many tea retailers seem to use) I don’t worry about transferring it… those pouches are probably more airtight than most tins!

ScottTeaMan

STALE TEA! WHAT A TRADEGY!! I agree Dinosara, you can push the air out of the bags, then seal them tighter by rolling and rubber banding the bag.

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
