Storage report

November 9, 2007 · 2 Comments

Just juggled my tea in my HK storage.  They smell fine, except the few cakes at the top that seem to have absorbed a bit of a woody smell.  It’s not overpowering and won’t kill me.  I put the cheaper tea near the top anyway, so that it won’t affect the good stuff as much, which are in the bottom shelf and mostly wrapped in tong wrapping.

I wonder what the cakes will taste like with long term absorption of wood smell?  I mean, I’m sure some cardboard boxes they used to store teas long term also emit an odor…. and sometimes a strong one (especially when wet?).  Those seem to have aged just fine over decades…

I guess we’ll find out in many years what will happen!
