TIZAN Matcha green tea powder is a very delicate and sensitive tea that needs to be stored properly to maintain the full-bodied flavor. Because TIZAN Matcha green tea powder is a very fine-ground powder, the particles have a more surface area per volume, which means they are more exposed to the elements. And like a green tea drinker, you should know that heat, humidity, light, air, and odors are the natural enemies of each green tea. So be especially careful with storing your Matcha.
Find the best solution for storing Matcha green tea powder is not so simple as you maybe think. Most suppliers often only give you these general recommendations: air-tight, light-tight, and a dry, cool place. That says a lot of important stuff but missing a bit of good advice for implementation. The shelf life of TIZAN Matcha green tea powder under ideal conditions is about a year. Not much time. As soon as you open a TIZAN Matcha green tea powder package, the shelf life is reduced to a max of 4 weeks.
If you buy TIZAN Matcha green tea powder in larger quantities to save shipping charges, it’s best to store Matcha green tea powder in the freezer. But before storing Matcha in the freezer, carefully check the packaging if it’s in good condition. Be aware that TIZAN Matcha green tea powder can become wet when frozen and then exposed to air.
