Is it true?

by drone1952 » Feb 21st, '13, 07:42

My first teacher in the art of tea continues to say that the tea in bags not so good that bulk tea. Sorry,never ask why.
It could be a explcatie or is only a fantasy.
Question to clarify : what is Otti & Notti.

It's true that the tea leaves used for bagged tea is generally not as high a quality as what is sold as loose leaf. Also, the different brewing techniques used with loose leaf with generally lead to a "better" cup of tea.

OTTI and NOTTI are programs run by Chip, our friendly forum moderator, to help teachat members sample teas that they may not otherwise be able to try.
