    I read on Twitter from someone quite knowledgeable that the best humidity level to keep Puerh is betwen 60 and 80%.

    Any thoughts on that?

    There is a difference between storing it to drink and storing it for aging. If you store it to drink keep it dry as you do with other teas otherwise humidity matters for the process.
    I don’t know the exact numbers but there is discussion about what the best humidity is. Some think that dry storage (humidity ~60% if I remember the numbers correctly) or wet storage (humidity >80% or so).
