How Long Does Tea Last?

Karen Gardiner

darjeeling black tea

Good quality tea is going to be drinkable for about a year from the time it is harvested and processed. However, since all tea is imported and transit times can vary, by the time the tea reaches you it may already be a few months old. It's a good idea to try to use your tea supply within about six months if you want to be sure it's fresh. If it takes you a year to use it, it will probably still taste okay, although you may be able to tell a slight difference in flavor.  (And, really, life is too short to drink bad tea! So drink it sooner than later.)
