Why should I choose loose leaf tea when I could just buy tea bags?
There’s no doubt about it – tea bags are convenient. But what you gain in convenience, you lose out in flavour and quality. Rather than using whole leaves, tea bags are typically made from lower-grade leftovers or “dust” from production facilities.
There’s also the environmental factor. White tea bags are produced using intensive chemical processes, and the result is a one-use-only product that isn’t fully biodegradable.
In comparison, a good quality loose leaf tea (like the ones we sell) can be brewed more than once. That’s not just savings for the environment; that’s savings for your pocketbook (not to mention a better-tasting beverage).
Finally, we’re firm believers that tea is meant to be shared – tea bags are not.
