Tea Storage for Loose Leaf Teas

Protect your investment (and your palate) by storing your fine, loose leaf tea in a proper tea container. Tea needs to be kept away from heat, light, air, and moisture.  The best way to store tea is at room temperature in an airtight tea canister. Unlike coffee, you cannot wrap up tea and put it in the freezer. Tea will lose its flavor and scent quickly if stored in fancy, purely decorative tea containers or kept near a heat source, such as a stove or next to the toaster in your kitchen.


 Although our loose leaf teas are very beautiful, please resist the urge to store the teas in glass container for display on your counter. An airtight canister is the best way keep your loose teas safe and fresh. Teavana’s airtight double walled stainless steel tea tins are the perfect tea storage container to keep your teas fresh for up to a year.  Shop our tea storage tins or consider the following tea storage options:

Teavana Perfect Tea Tin:

Our Perfect Tea Tins are designed to keep your teas fresh and delicious. These tea storage tins are available in three sizes to fit your needs: 6oz Tea Tin, 8oz Tea Tin, and 1lb Tea Tin.  Since teas can vary in weight and size, the same tin will be able to hold a smaller amount of a light (or less dense) tea like Lavender Dreams White Tea compared to a heavier tea like Jasmine Pearls Green Tea.

Gift Set Tea Tins:

Our gift set tea tins feature a unique paper finish for a distinctive look. They are designed to be filled with two or three different teas and given as a gift. These tea sets also come in a decorative box that looks great when opened. They are both pretty and functional, since they still keep teas very fresh.
