always good when there are ppl around who know something about teas. thnx for a good explanation!craftsman wrote: ↑Please note - This is the type of 'tea' store that doesn't really know what real tea is. Most the tea isn't pure tea - it's a blend of tea and herbs and other aromatics. Even with the few 'pure teas' that they have, I suspect that they don't really know what they have or are selling.

Tea bags came from the "Western" need for fast and easy while disregarding good. And you are right, most of the stuff in most bagged teas is the left over stuff from processing tea - commonly referred to as fannings - and sometimes the smaller stuff called dust. When the tea gets to that small of a piece, there is a lot of surface area so the tea steeps quickly... unfortunately, you also get a lot of bitterness as everything defluzes quickly into the tea (good and bad favours). If you take a whole leaf tea and compare the favours you get with the fannings of the same tea (even in the same foil pouch), you'll find the fannings to have a much stronger taste and, at the same time, a higher level of bitterness.eugene188 wrote: ↑always good when there are ppl around who know something about teas. thnx for a good explanation!
I always find it strange when ppl say a certain tea bag is so awesome, because from what I know and can see, it usually the scraps, leftovers, stems that are not good enough to put as loose leaf that gets into many teabags.

In North America, there really isn't a good place that I've found. Most places are like this one or a little better (ie. they have more information or a slightly larger selection or maybe even both). The best places I've found are more regional stores (ie. located in the region where the tea is grown). A few weeks a go, I posted a promo from a site in India that had an excellent selection of Darjeeling teas where they were having a 50% then a 40% off sale. But that site is really only good for some Darjeeling teas (the site I found out later is owned by a large tea estate owner who ones multiple estates) and as such isn't good for teas from Assam, China, Japan...
That's a hard one to say. I would guess that it's can't be any worse than tea bags... the tea bags may be worse as the leaves might be what was left over after a pest issue...
