Nicely written, Ang!You know I have often - as examples to various tea groups gotten out the exact tea from the same company - one with loose leaf and one with bagged and opened the bag and shown the difference that the leaves versus the dust make. The visual comparison on a tray has never failed to elicit surprise from them. : - )I love your articles! : - )
PSTYSM for the thoughtful tea you sent the other day - I have been slow at my proper thanks - so busy with company coming - not a single tea time had all week and all last weekend. *sigh* I sure appreciate your thoughtfulness. thank you!
Well written, as usual. As one who "grew up" on tea bags, At first I found loose tea a bit intimidating - but I love the tea sachets from Harney's and others.
That was a good answer to the question of loose versus bagged tea. I also like to enjoy both types.
So glad you're sharing this great column in your blog, we don't always get The Shopper at home. I love all the new flavors of the loose teas, very neat! Thanks for the updates, Joanie
