The tea comes in a metal can with a screw on top. Under the lid is a ring pull, so you know it is well sealed and protected. This tea is a bit more bitter than most of the other teas I have drank in the past, but not too bad. I think it will be an acquired taste, but I think I will enjoy it more once I become more accustomed to it. I've read that matcha has a lot of health benefits, so I will continue drinking it and probably learn to enjoy it more. I find that the health benefits of drinking this tea are worth the slight bitterness and recommend that you at least try it. If the bitterness is a problem you can always add a bit of honey to your drink. I didn't find it necessary though.
