Ippodo Mail (No. 65): Keeping Tea Fresh
The early May release of our Shincha (freshly-harvested sencha) has us thinking about the best ways to preserve the freshness of green tea. Green tea is quite delicate, and will lose its most delicious flavor and aroma steadily after opening or if it is exposed to direct light, strong odors, heat, or humidity. Follow the tips below to store your tea and enjoy it at its best.

A great way to store your tea is in a canister with a second lid on the inside, like this one from Kaikado. Meticulously handmade with Japanese pewter tin or copper plating, Kaikado canisters are gaining recognition overseas as well as throughout Japan, as they excel at preserving the tea inside. We have specially designed these canisters with our Ippodo seal on them, adding a unique touch.
