This is a question that is asked quite often – BRUU are renowned for sourcing the freshest and the best quality loose teas from around the world, but surely there is a use-by date on such produce. Every perishable food and drink have an advised use-by date but have you ever seen it on loose tea?
This is a good question; since we are dedicated BRUU infusiasts, we source fresh tea types and aim to disperse it to our wonderful members as swiftly as we can, we tend to go by a couple of months for storing our teas just to ensure all of our glorious air-tight stock is as flavoursome as can be! We have a cool, dark room full of our teas, ensuring that no sunlight streams through and affects taste; this is key to tea longevity.
There is however certain time frames that people go by when it comes to the likes of Fruit, Black and Green teas. Loose black tea can last for around 2 years if in air-tight packaging, around a year for greens and your floral, fruit teas are 6-12 months.
