Wrong black tea do not keep for 30 years. 1 year or some can last 2 years.

The only tea that lasts 30+ years is pu-erh tea.

And she forgot dried mushroms they last way longer than 30 years

Biscuits that will last 30 years?! I doubt they will taste good.

All the best, Leia

While I don't agree with everything she said. You have to take the context into account. She was talking about disaster preparedness. Since I like black tea, I would rather give it a go with storing black tea in a glass jar and have it not taste it's absolute best than have none. Black tea is not going to develop any bacteria if stored in an air tight jar. 

 I thought she brought up several intersting points about how to store things to last as long as possible.

Happy creating!

I made a list of the foods she mentioned. Food that lasts forever:

  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Corn syrup
  • Raw, unfiltered honey
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup
  • Vinegar
  • Popcorn
  • (Black tea)
  • Cornstarch
  • Soy sauce
  • Dry milk
  • Hard tac?
  • Chip biscuits
  • Dry bouillon
  • Ghee
  • Dried beans
  • Hard liquors
  • White rice

In the video, she uses moisture absorbers in some of the cans. As far as I have found, they can last for years in tightly sealed containers, but not forever.

Also worth mentioning is flour. It โ€onlyโ€ lasts for up to eight years, but due to its versatility, it can definitely be worth storing.
