A lot of people ask us why at Kadambri, we prefer to supply only loose leaf tea and not tea bag.
They say tea bags are easy to brew (I do not agree to that, but more on that later) and I end up telling them that they compromise a lot on the tea quality by using tea bags.
Tear up any tea bag from the shelf and in it you will find very finely ground tea leaves (technically known as Tea Dust or Fannings). Dust and Fannings are used in tea bags as it has higher surface area which when added to hot water releases flavor much faster than whole leaf teas. Though Dust and Fannings are not always bad quality, its small size causes it to loose freshness much faster than whole leaf teas (especially if packed in paper boxes and paper covers).
In contrast, High quality teas like Kadambri Green Teas are made of youngest long-whole-leaves of tea (called buds) and are not broken into pieces during the tea making process. It retains a high percentage of essential oils, beautiful aroma and delicious taste inside the leaves which when brewed gives it a unique flavor. Also long leaf teas are much less susceptible to moisture and retain freshness for longer periods.
Loose leaf green tea is also the cheapest option because you are paying only for the tea and not the extra packaging like in tea bags. If you want to buy the best green tea for home, then loose leaf is your best choice.
Try a cup of loose leaf tea and you will see the difference!
