Why loose leaf tea?
The differences between loose leaf tea and traditional tea bags go far beyond the surface. The leaves used in most bags are actually the "dust and fannings" from broken tea leaves. Finely broken tea leaves have lost most of their essential oils and aroma. When steeped, they release more tannins than whole leaf tea, resulting in bitter astringent brews. The material, shape, and size of the bags themselves are also important factors. Most tea bags constrain the tea leaves, keeping them from expanding to their full flavor and aroma potential.
