Quality Tea in the Tea Bag

Gone are the days when discerning tea drinkers turned their noses up at tea bags. Yet some people still think tea bags contain only poorer-quality tea.

Today especially the good brands of tea bags feature top-quality teas, mainly the finest leaf grades called "BOP's", "fannings" and "dust". The advantage is that these fine and finest grades offer the boiling water a large surface area in the confined space of the tea bag, making these teas very strong and aromatic.

So they are certainly not inferior quality! The only difference between these and loose teas is the leaf size. How the leaves are plucked and processed determines the grade of the tea, and the same harvest can be used to produce different leaf grades. You can rest assured when you buy Teekanne tea in any form that you always get top-quality tea.
