Re: Oxygen Absorbers & Laminated Storage Bags

i think it should be ok. you're right that it's exothermic, but it hopefully shouldn't get too hot before the oxygen in the bag is used up. they're commonly used in tea packaging. there's no point in using them unless you're impulse sealing the bag though. also note that O2 scavengers are pretty muc...

Re: A bit of gossip about TC...

i'm not trying to be disrespectful towards TC, but i was browsing their site and saw some funny changes. they put "Oldest and Largest Tea Forum Online" on every page in the title. this seems to be an attempt at targeting the "tea forum" keyword. what if we put "Come join us for Tea Chat" in our titl...

it's been brought to my attention by @James Edward that you could only upload 3 image attachments per post. i guess i never noticed before because people would make followup posts to share more images. for convenience, the limit's been raised to 10 attachments per post.
