The ones I bought are specifically designed to be used in low humidity uses like for tea and coffee.
I see. That’s the kind that comes with its own moisturizer.

Since you also mentioned coffee, there’s a blog post that is worth reading. https://coffeeadastra.com/2019/03/26/so ... fee-fresh/

A vendor's perspective:

@Bokis correct when he says that O2 absorbents are not (or very rarely) used with roasted or highly oxidized teas. On the other hand, my low oxidized, low roasted tea almost always arrives with absorbents. As these tend to be placed at the bottom of the packages, I don't remove them until the particular package is nearly empty.

When I ship orders, I do put absorbents into the pouches. I am not convinced this does much good but it certainly does no harm. Pascal's wager.
