TEA-LICIOUS LOOSE LEAVES

By September 27, 2019 No Comments

Matcha, oolong, rooibos, chai, green, black, red, white, blends: these are some of the most common types of teas enjoyed by tea drinkers around the world. As one of the most ancient beverages on the planet, tea is made by soaking dried leaves in water which gives it a distinctive colour and taste. In addition to offering a wide variety of flavours, many people choose to drink tea for its antioxidant properties and health benefits such as soothing the digestive system, helping with weight loss, promoting heart health and boosting the immune system. You can find tea leaves packed conveniently in corrugated paper cartons lined with aluminium foil, glass jars, in metal tins and fancy metalised plastic sachets, or sold in tea bags made of special porous paper.

 

Loose leaves or tea bags?

Lets face it, being able to dunk a tea bag into hot water, and then easily throw it out once its served its purpose, is just so much simpler and more convenient than using a tea infuser and having to clean it out later. But that is really their only advantage. Here are two reasons why.

1. Taste and aroma – The quality of tea leaves that have been chopped into tiny pieces to fit into small tea bags, is severely reduced as they have lost most of their essential oils and aroma. On the other hand, loose tea is not trapped inside a bag, and can therefore fully expand and release all its natural flavours.
 
 

2. Quality – Sometimes, tea bags are used as a way to disguise lower quality tea leaves, or the dust and fannings of full leaf tea. With loose leaves, tea companies cannot get away with that.


3. Freshness – 
Tea bags are usually produced on an industrial scale and may sit in a warehouse or on a shelf for a long time before they ever reach a consumer. In contrast, loose leaves premium are usually hand-selected and crafted by tea masters.

The bottom line is, whole loose leaf teas offer more flavour, aroma, antioxidants, and pleasure than the tiny leaf bits that find its way into mass-produced tea bags.
