Tea Bag or Whole Tea Leaves?

If you ask serious tea drinkers they will say loose tea leaves tea over tea bags.  Loose tea leaves are preferred over tea bags for the taste and the preservation of healthful properties from drinking tea.
The following reasons against tea bags may make sense to you.

Many supermarkets sell tea bags of a lower quality tea. The whole or least broken tea leaves are more valued for flavor, potential healthful properties and visual effect.  Most tea bags purchased at supper market stores contain broken pieces and stems of tea leaves.  The results in less essential loll and chemical compounds that give tea the distinctive flavor and healthful benefits.

There are potential health risks with using tea bags.  Many tea bags are made from paper manufactured with a chemical compound called epichlorohydrin. This compound is linked with the manufacture of plastics and insecticides.  Other objection tor tea bags is the commonly used chorine bleached tea bags. It is suspected that some of the residues still remains and would be released with addition of water.  The only way to know if your tea bags are free from these chemicals is to watch for their labeling and/or call the manufacture directly.

Surely, there are quality tea companies out there using chemical free tea bags and produce quality tea in their tea bags. Perhaps you have a good experience that you want to share?
