How to Store Your Matcha For Longevity

Matcha powder

It only takes one touch of silky matcha green tea powder to know that it is delicate stuff. It doesn't like heat, it isn't fond of exposure to air, and it no longer flourishes in light as it once did as a plant. 

Matcha, when sealed in its packaging container, has a solid year on the shelf before it starts lose its beautiful colour and taste, but once opened, it's best to try and enjoy within about 3 months. After a package of matcha has been opened, there is no point in skimping and saving it for a special occasion, we encourage you to enjoy daily in every way you can. See our recipes page for some inspiration.

Once you've opened your tin or bag, remember to reseal the and store in the fridge. 

Here at Mista Matcha , we designed our matcha containers with this purpose in mind. Our premium quality matcha green tea powder is not only protected from light, but comes in a resealable tin to both preserve freshness and provide convenience. Our Everyday matcha comes in resealable stand up pouches.
