1. Why drink black loose-leaf tea?

Black loose-leaf tea is robust and has a full-bodied flavor profile. The loose-leaf format allows for the optimal extraction of flavor compounds. Brewing with loose-leaf tea allows the leaves to unfurl, which results in a more robust flavor. The superior quality associated with loose-leaf tea further enhances its appeal. By providing the leaves ample space to expand, the inherent richness and complexity of the tea are fully realized.

2. Is loose-leaf tea healthier than bags?

Yes, loose-leaf tea is often considered healthier than bags. It retains more essential oils and flavors. Thanks to minimal processing, the natural antioxidants and essential oils stay intact. Tea bags contain small broken leaves, and the processing involved may risk the integrity of these benefits.

3. How many times can you steep loose-leaf black tea?

You can steep your loose-leaf black tea a few times without sacrificing much flavor. Many believe the second cup of black tea surpasses the first. We do suggest limiting reuse to about 3-5 times. Black teas are recognized for their robust flavor profile. If you steep too many times, that boldness disappears.

4. How long should you brew loose-leaf black tea?

Put the leaves in the teapot to brew your tea, and pour 8-10 ounces of water directly over them. Let the black tea steep for about three to five minutes. After 5 minutes, use a basket strainer over your cup while pouring the tea to catch any leaves.

Be cautious not to overstep beyond this time, as it releases more tannins into your cup. Tannins are a group of bitter and astringent compounds. This results in a darker color and a bitter flavor.
