Konnichiwa, it’s meヽ(^。^)ノ I wanted to know how effective partial storing is. In the series of my storing tests, I included one for it. Here is the condition for the test. I have two samples. I kept one in a tea caddy at a room temperature and opened it almost every day. For the other one, I triple wrapped and didn’t open it. I did this test for three weeks for both sencha and matcha.
Tea: sencha (3g each) and matcha (1.5g each)
Term: about three weeks
Place: room temperature (the average was about 22degC (72F))
|A||Single packing (tea caddy) Opened almost everyday|
|G||Triple packing (small plastic bag, tea caddy, plastic bag with zipper) |
Not-opened during the term
Sencha: 3g tea leaves, 100ml (3.5oz) boiling water, one minute brewing
Matcha: 1.5g matcha, 60ml (2.1oz) 85degC (185F) water
Daily caddies are opened pretty often and it also refreshes the air and introduces more oxygen and moist into the caddy. So, I believe the theory of the partial storing naturally makes sense. I wanted to prove its efficiency or I should say that I myself wanted to know how effective it is. What‘s your thought? I’ll tell you the result on the next entry. Jah!
