Expired tea will not harm you. It just might not taste as fresh and delicious.

Most dried food products (nothing to do with calories) will last pretty much indefinitely if stored well.

Usually my motto is: when in doubt throw it out. But with your results of a google search and your saying that it tastes fine, I would say go ahead and drink it.

I wouldn't worry about the expiration date on something like tea - unless it was ancient! I think the dates generally mean 'best if sold by' assume you'll have time after that date to consume it.

i just found 2 unopened tea bag boxes (lipton) and i didnt find an expired date on the boxes till after i drank my didnt taste bad at all.. was and is refreshing .. i read on google...

"Tea Never expires as long as its sealed tight with not air, humidity or light!
I have seen 100 year old teas being sold in china, and they are really expensive.
I work in a tea company and our experts have informed me that since tea does not contain any nutritional value "calories", if properly stored away from air and light could last for many long years."
