Confession time, I’ve had organic tea go moldy on me before it’s expiration date. I know cringe! And it was one of those situations wherever I was in such denial and so trusting of the brand that I kept sipping on the pungent moldy flavor. Don’t worry I didn’t finish the cup.
This has never happened to me when drinking a generic brand tea. But let’s be honest, if tea goes moldy it means it’s in its purest form. (Kind of like comparing the time fresh baked bread takes to get moldy compared to shelf bread- shelf bread can go for weeks compared to the few short days of fresh).
In all honesty my encounter with moldy tea was likely because I didn’t store it right. Which now that I think about it, I did put it into a different container than the one it came in. Palm. Head. Smack.
Finding a brand of tea you can rely on that’s not from a large name brand can be tricky. But it’s well worth it once you finally do!
