These are hard silica beads preconditioned to maintain a specific humidity levels of 60%, 65%, or 70%. They are ideal for aging and maintaining your Pu-Erh Tea, whether it is stored in a box, canister, caddy, or other creative system. These humidification beads are a moisture sensitive 2-way system that both absorb humidity and release it automatically as necessary to maintain a perfect environment for your Pu-Erh Tea. Unlike older style gel humidifiers, these will not expand and push their way through your humidifier, nor will they develop mold.
Our silica beads are the same type of product that is used to protect the significant investments and priceless collections housed by fine art museums and collectors. Do not make the mistake of buying lesser quality beads that are not specifically designed to maintain a proper humidity level. You spent a lot on your investment, so make sure you have the right protection!
RHShield™ will never "wear" out as long as they are properly maintained. Maintenance is as simple as adding distilled water when they dry out, or regenerating the beads if they become completely saturated. Normal silica beads are a natural desiccant where their main function is to absorb humidity in order to keep a product dry. Their use is intended for protecting products such as electronics, clothing, and food from humidity and mold. Therefore they are only intended to absorb humidity, not release any of it. RHShield™ is designed to both absorb humidity and release it in order to maintain an ideal relative humidity.
