What is the best way to store Essiac tea herbs?
Essiac tea herbs [dried mixture] should be stored in air-tight containers in a cool, dry, dark place. It is best to store Essiac in glass containers. Essiac tea herbs are light-sensitive (the liquid tea is also light-sensitive). However, it is not necessary to store the dried herbs in amber (brown) glass jars as long as it is stored in the dark. Canning jars are great for this because they have tight-fitting lids. For long-term storage it is best to avoid storing Essiac tea in plastic containers or plastic bags. Herbs from herb companies are shipped in plastic bags or plastic jars. However, if not used right away, the herbs should be transferred to air-tight glass containers to avoid storing in plastic containers for long-term storage. Some plastics can taint the herbs with toxic substances over a long period of time or if over-heated.
When one makes liquid Essiac tea (concentrate) from the dried herbs, it should be stored in a refrigerator unless it is properly canned using proper canning methods. Sterilizing the jars usually increases the shelf life in the refrigerator. When refrigerator doors are closed the light goes out so there is no need for brown glass.
"We all have the right to benefit from Essiac because no one can stop us making it, no one can stop us taking it and no one can stop us deciding how and when we're going to do it." [THE ESSIAC BOOK by Mali Klein, 2006]
