Running On Fumes? 5 Insanely Good Loose Leaf Teas To Give You Life

June 22, 2018

It’s the end of another week, and whether your week sailed along smoothly or felt like one unending headache, I think you deserve a cup of tea for making it though! And I mean a *real* cup of tea–not some sad tea dust in a tiny flat bag. I’m talking gorgeous, fragrant loose leaf tea that looks like it was carefully gathered by a woodland fairy.

What makes loose leaf tea so wonderful is that it those large pieces of flora better retain their essential oils (=flavor, aroma, and antioxidants) than the tea dust found in most conventional teas. A little goes a long way, and the tea experience is simply divine. Finally, when loose leaf tea is placed in a little ball or a built-in strainer in a teapot, the leaves are allowed to open, resulting in a richer, more complex taste.
