If found these videos that bring up some important points in the ‘loose vs. bags’ debate. People who never buy loose leaf tea often don’t realize that there is a very significant difference between the two, both in flavor and qualities. On top of what is mentioned, I would like to add that silk tea bags which have been popularized several years ago, apart from being ‘in’ also give a better result. They usually contain premium tea instead of dust and they don’t give the infusion that ‘papery’ taste. The empty tea bags mentioned in the video are often referred to as ‘tea filters’ and you should be able to buy them in any tea store.
