Vacuum packing technology has been utilized by Chinese and South Korean TCM facilities for many years. Herbal formulas are put together the same way as a regular raw formula. It is then cooked in a stainless steel pressure cooker at 112 °C using filtered water. After it is prepared, the tea is piped through filters entering into a vacuum packing chamber for packing. Teas are packed at high temperature, in the absence of air.
Vacuum packing allows the packing of prepared herbal teas to be preserved for an extended period of time without the use of preservatives or chemicals. When kept at room temperature, they can be preserved for thirty (30) days. When kept in a refrigerator, they can be preserved up to sixty (60) days. (Avoid storing in extreme temperatures; refrigerate if temperature exceeds 75 °F).
