Loose Leaf Tea

At Hettie’s we have been hand blending loose leaf tea to perfection. The range covers the traditional black teas, our wonderful green teas, blue teas, white teas and infusions…. we have got the lot covered!

Why is loose leaf tea better than shop bought tea bags?

The differences between loose tea and traditional tea bags are numerous, and it is subject to much discussion, so we will try and simplify it. The leaves used in most bags are actually the “dust and fannings” from broken tea leaves.
This is where the main difference in quality, from full leaf tea, arises. These finely broken tea leaves have lost most of their essential oils and aroma. When steeped, they release more tannins than whole leaf tea, resulting in bitter astringent brews.

We understand that sometimes life is too busy or you may not have an infuser to hand to be able to steep the perfect cup of loose leaf tea. So, we have packaged our loose leaf teas in these handy little voile bags.
