Pumidors are Really Great. You need one.

Pumidors are Really Great.  You need one.

Maybe not this big, but you need one to keep your tea fresh and healthy especially if you live in a drier climate or a climate that gets seasonally dry.  

I made this one from an old IKEA cabinet.  While I didn't document it all, here's basically what I did and you can do it too!

1. Get a cabinet you like

2. Use weather striping all around the doors

3. Seal the seams inside with silicone.  Let dry completely.

4. Cover the entire inside with a vapor barrier.  Get it at your home improvement store.

5.  Drill some holes in the shelves using a hole saw - a drill bit for cutting holes.

6.  Get an electronic humidifier.  I got mine HERE.  The second one down.  

7.  Put the gauge outside so you can monitor it at any time.  Mine stays steady around 70%.
