When at home, I prepare my tea using high quality leaf teas in an infuser container, which once steeped, is diffused into a tea pot.
When outside the home, it is usually simpler to opt for a tea bag – which used to mean getting an inferior product called “tea dust.” But not today. It is liberating and exhilarating to a tea lover like me to be able to have a superior cup of tea using a single served bag…which is filled with quality leaf tea and encased by an eco-friendly and food friendly wrapping. Such is the case with two products I had this week while on vacation. They are so good that I had to share them with you.
First – from Mighty Leaf – one of my absolute favorite tea purveyors – comes tea in their signature and award winning pouch.
Second – from Mariage Freres – when I needed more tea this week on the road, we were near Dean & Deluca who carries an impressive array of French fine teas…including Mariage Freres. I had never purchased their teas in a pouch before, only loose teas…when I opened the box, I was thrilled to see these darling little cotton muslin sachets filled with subtly fragrant Earl Grey leaf tea…made with Darjeeling and Bergamot. Steeping with these little sachets is a treat…makes the brewing seem quite special.
I am so happy to find that most high quality tea purveyors are offering single serve tea pouches using high-end materials and filling them with whole leaf teas…it’s not just our mother’s old dust in a tea bag that’s available to us anymore. Yay I say!!!
Drink Tea…It’s good for you 🙂
