Things you want to avoid when storing tea:

· Air
· Light
· Moisture
· Excessive heat

Store your tea in an air-tight, opaque container away from moisture or heat. The black bag your Tea & Tradition’s tea comes in is a good storage container. You want to make sure the bag is tightly sealed. If you are purchasing large quantities (+4 ounces) I would recommend purchasing smaller tea tins (available for $3.50 by calling us when placing your order – they will be on the website in the near future) to store the tea you will use everyday and keeping the larger quantity sealed in the bag without exposing to constant light and air.

You may not want to store you tea with your spices because it is extremely absorbent and will absorb the aromas of what is around it.

Sunday as we were leaving a friend's house I dialed my in-laws, so my hubby could wish his dad a happy Father's day. As I handed him the phone he turned around to back up and hit the phone out of my hand and it sailed directly, screen first, into his freshly poured glass of Georgia Sunshine. Needless to say the phone had no shine, no screen and no signal when it was retrieved from a still perfectly good cup of tea. So, remember . . .

It was a hysterical way to end a wonderful day. I googled "cell phone fell in cup of tea" and was glad to find out I am not the only one that has experienced this. There were got 89,700 results with the first ten being of no help to me. The phone had to be replaced on Monday; turns out tea (or any liquid for that matter) is not so good for cell phones. If my cell phone is going to fall in anything it should be TEA.

The new TIGO travel mug is the all-in-one way to enjoy loose leaf tea at home, at the office, or on the go. Its simple two-piece design makes brewing loose tea a snap no matter where you are. The secret is the built-in rotating filter – just rotate the filter to vertical to add tea leaves and water, then horizontal to strain out the leaves while drinking. You can then re-fill it with water to brew another cup, or if you're done, just rotate the filter back to vertical and rinse! There's no need to clean the filter separately because it's built right in to the cup. The filter rotates by turning the metal band near the top of the cup. Its practical design makes loose leaf tea convenient and portable. And fun too – you'll love seeing the leaves swirl around as they brew the tea to a beautiful green hue. Now you can enjoy loose tea anywhere you go!

Visit us our website and order your travel mug today! It is located under tea accessories and featured products.
