Tea, no matter how it’s brewed, is a blessing in a cup! Some tea connoisseurs prefer brews made out of loose tea leaves; to some, tea bags are a saviour; then there are the ones who indulge in both as and when time permits. Tea bags vs. loose leaf tea has been the topic of many debates since tea bags came into being. Let’s learn a little about the key difference between them!

The Difference Between Loose Leaf and Tea Bags

When it comes to Tea bags vs. loose leaf tea, both have their own charm. The choice you make depends on the kind of experience you desire - is it an elaborate indulgence you are looking for or is it convenience that you prioritise?

If you want to savour a tea blend’s true flavours and aromas, then loose tea leaves are what you must turn to! Although far more convenient, tea bags often fall short on giving you the exclusive tea experience that loose tea leaves can. That’s not to say that tea bags don’t make for a good cup of tea, they absolutely do and they have the same health benefits as well.

A brew made of loose tea leaves caters to all your senses. Since the leaves aren’t crammed into a bag, they preserve their original flavour and scent. These infusions give you an enchanting visual experience as the leaves unfurl beautifully into the cup. Indulging in a brew made of loose leaf teas requires a lot more efforts compared to tea bags. With tea bags, you don’t need multiple tea accessories at your service. All you need a cup, your little tea bag, and you are good to go!
