Not a tasting note…:
So I pulled the paper bag of this out of my tea cupboard since I haven’t had this in a while. I measured the leaf out into the strainer and while the water was boiling. I noticed a worm inside the bag and some webbing stuff. This seriously grossed me out of course and I dumped the tea and stuff out. I’m just thankful I noticed it before I finished making the cup and drank it. Ugh I’m pretty sure all my other tea is worm free as everything else is in airtight containers. I’m going to check everything just to be safe though tomorrow.

When I cash my next check I’m definitely going to start looking for some containers to store my small amounts of tea in. So this doesn’t happen again EVER!. Hopefully I didn’t gross anyone out too bad. I mean I noticed it before even adding water to the cup. If anyone has any small storage container recommendations for little amounts of tea please let me know!

I buy tons of these off Amazon, since they are cheaper than tins and pretty similar already to what lots of tea companies ship their tea in. I find I have to repackage the tea I get from tea companies into these immediately if they come in paper bags, plastic bags, or a bag that doesn’t have a resealable top, just so storage will last longer. They are food-safe aluminum with zip tops. The smallest size is great for about an ounce of tea or less (also awesome for sampler tea swaps), while the next size up is what I use when I have around 1-2.5 ounces of tea (though because white tea is so light and fluffy, even 2 ounces of that I typically have to put into two of the 4.7×7 bags). I always keep a package of each on hand and reorder when I get low.

Yep, I do much the same as Mastress Alita. If I don’t like the packaging of a tea, it immediately gets put into pouches similar to those. I’m always worried about things getting into tea, which I don’t think I’ve ever found from how I store tea. But sometimes the occasional spider on the wall will make me hope they at least avoid the tea! With that sort of packaging though, I don’t really have to worry about it.

I have found spiders crawling around my tea shelves and cupboards… but then… spiders can get on anything, evil things! I’ve never found them inside any of my tea, though!
