4. No filter paper or tea bags
We use pure loose leaf orthodox tea and herbs to prepare our blends which we package whole in pouches to allow you to infuse wholly.“Whole-leaf tea” means tea that’s primarily made up of whole, unbroken leaves. Loose-leaf tea is a tea that is not brewed in a teabag. When you steep loose-leaf tea, it has (or should have) room for tea leaves to absorb water and expand as they infuse. This allows the water to flow through the leaves and extract a wide range of vitamins, minerals, flavors, and aromas from the leaves. When you steep tea in a teabag, its infusion is limited by the size of the teabag. The number one reason to drink loose leaf tea is quality. Even low quality leaves are better than anything you’ll find in any standard tea bag, and good quality tea leaves are a revelation. If you’re used to drinking tea made from bags, you’ll be shocked at the difference.
