Fresh is best
Make sure you find the freshest loose-leaf teas available, that’s where all the goodness lies as the leaves haven’t yet lost their essential oils. Tea bags at the supermarket tend to contain what’s left after all the best quality tea leaves have been selected (which is mostly dust!). We’ve found that Teaology are a great source of top quality tea blends – with and without caffeine. They even a range for children – a wonderful alternative to sugar-laden drinks. They also have a beautiful range of tools, accessories and healthy gift options.
If you’re not sure which blend to start with (because taste is everything, right?), then check out these great Tea-ser vail trays. Sample a range of different blends so you can find which ones are the right ones for you before you buy a big bag!
