What Are You REALLY Getting In a Tea Bag?
For Americans, anything that can give more convenience is usually thought of as "better". This is why about 95% of the tea sales in the United States come in "bag" form.
What's actually in a tea bag?
When tea leaves are plucked from the plants and sorted out, they are put into categories of quality. Whole-leaf tea's are obviously of the best quality, and since you can't fit whole-leaf teas into a tiny little tea bag, they get the runt of the liter.
I often hear people at restaurants asking for coffee "from a fresh-brewed pot". Well folks, getting bagged tea is is like getting coffee from a pot that was brewed 3 hours ago, complete with the little coffee grinds that get stuck in your teeth.
I usually carry a few tea bags myself for when I'm in a hurry, but I usually try to brew my own tea because the taste is incredibly better. Adagio Teas are one of my favorite suppliers. They have high quality product.
Whole leaf teas have been out for thousands of years, and many books have been dedicated to the art of brewing tea. Have you ever seen a book about bagging tea? I don't think so.
One thing I will say though, is that supermarket tea is still of low quality. As with anything that's mass produced, all they're worried about is getting tea into a bag and boxing it up. When you order from a quality company, they actually care about the tea they give you and spend tremendous amounts of time preparing it.
Although I will always recommend to brew your own tea using high quality leaves, I understand that some people don't want to, for whatever reason. If thats the case, you should get tea bags.
