The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

iHerb Customer Reviews
After trying several different varieties of Tulsi, this one is by far preferred.
As I write this, the product is sold out, and I'm not surprised. This tea has such a wonderful, delicate flavour. I enjoy it in the evening after dinner, or just while relaxing. I don't even take the leaves out, and I've found that it never gets too strong, and is never bitter. Highly recommend this tea. It definitely has that basil flavour to it, but basil is one of my favourite herbs, so it's perfect for me.
