Hi all,

I am moving and probably going to be away from home for a period from 6 to 12 month.

My question is simple, how do you store your teaware for this, kind of "long term" period.

Don't worry i will keep the essencial at my fingertips.

best,

Christian

i don't think any special care needs to be taken unless you're worried about someone (or a pet) accidentally breaking it.
you could wrap them and put them in a box or something. just don't store them anywhere smelly or use smelly packaging materials

I wrap them and store them in boxes. For teapots, I either wrap separately lid and body, or place a tissue in between lid and body, use an elastic anchored on the spout and handle going over the lid to keep the lid attached to the body (the elastic should not be too strong or it might break the spout), and then wrap.

Unrelated to OP, but should tea ware be kept away from direct sunlight?

Not really a problem, I dry my pots by an open kitchen window... A friend has pots out in a garden setting where his tray etc are located

I would do the same. When placing a tissue between the lid and body, use only 1 ply. Too thick and it will cause the rims or lid to crack while in transit / being moved.

Adorable mini ginger jars. These can store a little bit of tea if it is rolled but not much else. Jars differ a bit in size and color but have the same design. Will look great anywhere in your house or fill it with tea and give away as a gift!

If I were going to be away for more than a few weeks I’d also take precautions to minimize damage from natural disasters such as flooding, tornado events, earthquakes, hail, fires, etc. You can easily protect valuable teaware in most of those scenarios if you are at home but these events could damage/destroy your items if you are away.

The most common scenario for myself is the threat of hail damage. We get hail storms and I’ve seen many that came through windows and bounced well into outside-facing rooms. I move my teaware at least 6 feet from the windows when large hail is in the area.
