    Does tea go bad? I've had this in my cupboard for many months. Close to a year. Brewed a cup tonight. Tastes ok but smells strange.

    then it was very likely not so fresh. It was opened, but has been sealed (it has a ziplock seal). no sunlight, just been hanging out in the cupboard.

    I have loose leaf tea most mornings (instead of coffee) but I'm uncouth and just nuke the water in a big pyrex measuring cup and then add the leaves in an over-the-cup sort of thing that gets fished out when the tea is ready. I've been mostly drinking black tea lately, but like oolong and green teas too.

    Don't know about use by dates on tea, but I came across an unopened bag of coffee in the pantry the other day that was at least 7 years old. Tasted kinda funky, and ended up in the compost pile.

    Thanks to the kindness and generosity of one of our members, I was able to experiment with high altitude brewing during my trip to Colorado with some pu'er- a 2008 Menghai 8582, one of my favorite blends. Thanks!

    Received a lot of strange looks in the hotel dining rooms, I'll admit. And my teeny yixing pot made it home in one piece.

    I left my tea pick home, but I managed to misappropriate a butter knife from the kitchen. It did the job, but it won't be spreading butter any time soon.

    Thanks!

    Did you forget the tea pick, or did it resemble a push dagger too much for TSA? ;) I remember one of you guys had a very handsome one made from a polished walnut. Joel perhaps?
