The clerk at a tea store once warned me not to put two dissimilar teas in the same tea tin (separated in bags). She said the scents mixed so much that it ruined the taste of both of them! Has anyone else had this experience?
@teacoupons I can see that happening if the tea is in plastic bags in a tin. Or paper bags. Or if the tea is very strongly flavored, like a Lapsang Souchong, stuffed in with an Earl Grey. What kind of scents were you mixing?
@jackie Well I actually haven’t had that problem myself because I took her advice. I’m not sure what kind of scents she was mixing though. She didn’t say. Wasn’t sure if it was a sales tactic with maybe a hint of truth to try to sell more tea tins, but I thought it sounded reasonable enough to take her word for it!
