Quality VS Convenience
Though tea has not always come in a convenient little bag, it is a very popular way of dispensing tea especially in the U.S. This quick and simple way to prepare teas is appealing to our busy and fast paced society but it sacrifices a great deal of quality for convenience. Bagged tea is often the left over material from what is packaged as loose leaf tea. Loose leaf tea is also more effective due to the fact that is has been left whole and its chemical composition is left intact more so than that of bagged teas. So does one have to suffer through a long drawn out process to enjoy loose leaf tea? Luckily no, there are several devices that make brewing loose leaf tea just as easy as bagged tea such as tea balls and strainers that fit into and on top of cups. No longer does there need to be a sacrifice of quality for convenience, and tea can be enjoyed in its most delicious form.
