Full-Leaf Tea Versus Tea Bags

March 16, 2010

At The Republic of Tea, all the virtues of full-leaf cannot be fully expressed here but one is quite clear, whole tea leaves retain their natural oil yielding a more richly flavored, full-bodied tea! However we offer tea bags as a convenience and another choice for our Citizens.

It is important to remember that the contents of our tea bags are NOT the remnants of the leaf tea but the actual tea leaves cut to fit into a tea bag. We take great care in sourcing only the finest tea to use in our tea bags. When the tea is cut to tea bag size, the brew has more fullness but less flavor than full leaf.

Thus, enjoying full-leaf or tea bags from The Republic of Tea will provide you with the same great taste and healthful benefits as we source only premium tea for our Citizens whether full-leaf or tea bags!
