There are various reasons why this is a favorable option:
  • Less packaging means less impact on the environment
  • Tea leaves need room to expand for full-bodied flavor. Bags or tea ball diffusers constrain the tea leaves, keeping them from expanding
  • The leaves used in most bags are actually the "dust and fannings" from broken tea leaves resulting in loss of most of their essential oils and aroma
Keep it simple!

You gain much more in quality - This way you taste the tea, not the bag.
