Why are these on sale? These containers are nearing the Japanese "use by" date, which, under Japanese decree, is only 6 months after packing. However, in the USA, these teas are still considered fresh up to a one year "use by" date. And incidentally, if you keep this matcha tea can sealed in the freezer, you cam extend its incredible flavor for another year!
