different marketing strategy,
maybe there's less broken leaf-a couple millimeters longer
, maybe the loose leaf will stay fresh longer (unless by shaking/turning the bag/inserting spoons over and over into the bag the leaf gets exposed to more air than tbags that stay still when you grab the top bag from box), but whatever, still, its black tea, not "high quality", made to be mixed with milk, so i dont think it will make much difference as far as flavor.
i got the tbags because im lazy
as many English teas they're not individually wrapped and theres 2 tbags attached to eachother.(YG tbag pics
