A previous old tea guest shared such an article: relatives and friends gave a lot of green tea, West Lake Longjing and Western Maojian.Putting it at home, I haven’t disassembled the packaging. Now it has been two or three years later, can I still drink it?
Speaking of which, I can’t help but want to ask how long the shelf life of Green Tea is?
Everyone’s opinions are different. There is no complete and uniform standard for the shelf life of green tea, but it is roughly 12 months -18 months.
Because the shelf life is relative to the tea collection time, but today’s tea transactions have experienced a variety of channels from picking, processing to the final circulation.Disaster.
So, ignoring these details, we might as well talk about how green tea stores better.
Green tea focuses on a fresh, and it is easy to change color and taste when the storage conditions are unfavorable.Therefore, the green tea you bought should be operated in accordance with the following methods.
1. Low temperature refrigerated
To avoid the above situation, the most critical point is low -temperature refrigeration.Because green tea is not fermented tea, under high temperature conditions, oxidation will occur after contacting the air, causing the tea itself to show darkness and darkness. The tea soup not only has no aroma, but also very faint.
Therefore, the tea you bought can be placed in the refrigerator for short -term storage. It is better to put it directly in the freezer in the long run.
2. Do a good seal
So how can tea prevent skewers?In fact, it is mainly related to sealing.The packaging of green tea on the market mainly includes iron cans, porcelain cans, special bags, etc. The sealing effects achieved by different packaging are also different.For family storage, a three -layer packaging method can be used.
First seal it with a food bag for a food, put a layer of iron can be wrapped outside.Then use the plastic wrap to seal the outside of the iron can for the second time.After such a set of operations, it is not easy to taste with other food even if it is put in the refrigerator.
3. Avoid light and moisture -proof
We have already learned about green tea to avoid oxidation at low temperature. In fact, strong light will also affect the quality of green tea.Green tea is placed near the direct sunlight, and oxidation and darkening will occur in 10 days and a half months.Although it does not affect drinking, it is inevitable that there is a lack of beauty.
More importantly, tea cannot be placed in places where it is easy to get in touch.Many people like to put them on the cabinet. They do not know that tea has a strong adsorption ability. At this time, it is easy to recover.
Good tea needs to be stored more carefully. These two types of tea are often repurchased by old tea guests, so try it.
