Tea is sold in various forms: loose or tea bag. Loose tea must be preserved in the dark and in air tight conditions. The tea must be kept far from aromas such as coffee and spices, like butter, tea absorbs odors. There is no strict expiration date as tea never becomes harmful for your health; only the flavours evaporate with time. The recommendation is to have a small stock of tea which is regularly renewed. This also permits a regular renewal of different flavours and types, allowing the customer to choose between the constantly evolving ranges available at George Cannon. It is not unusual that a flavoured tea amateur is tempted by the « grand crus », and never returns to drinking flavoured teas. Like wine, it is essential to accustom ones pallet to new flavours. For best conservation, it is suggested to keep your « primeur » teas in the refrigerator. George Cannon proposes more than 600 references of loose famous origin and flavoured teas in its tea shop in Paris.
