SO much more aesthetically pleasing than a sodden teabag!! And this example is textbook perfect!
- And this is what you should be finding if your green tea says it consists of the first leaves and bud
- And this is why loose leaf tea yields a far superior cup than that made with a teabag
- And this is why you can re-infuse many loose leaf teas repeatedly
—because, to begin with, these whole leaves retain more flavor than cut pieces of leaves, and then they keep releasing flavor over multiple brews as they unfurl. (see my earlier post for more info on this)
