Green tea is ubiquitous in Japan and is commonly known simply as "tea" (お茶 ocha). Tea was first grown in China, and was brought to Japan by Myoan Eisai, a Japanese Buddhist priest who also introduced the Rinzai school of Zen Buddhism. #tea#teabreak#ck#ceylonkisses#srilanka#kisses#monday

Loose leaf tea is without a doubt the best way to enjoy tea...and for several reasons.
1) Greater Health Benefits
Since loose tea consists of larger leaves it keeps more of its powerful antioxidants and plentiful plant polyphenols. What does that mean?
You get more of the goodies that tea is noted for, health benefits! Tea can help prevent certain cancers, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, aid in weight loss, and boost the immune system. Tea brewed by the bag contains fewer of these properties.
Loose tea will always give you a healthier cup, and for best results, it is recommended the leaves are brewed within the first year...6 to 8 months preferred.
2) Better Aroma And Flavor
Loose tea has more surface area than the "tea dust" (fannings) that go into bags. The larger the leaves, the more natural oils you get to steep out of them, and this of course means great flavor, along with a pleasant scent!
Loose leaf will have a nice fresh and clean taste, and depending on the variety may taste sweet, floral, vegetal, malty, or earthy along with many other distinct nuances. Bagged tea will almost always taste bitter, old, stale, fuzzy, and muddy, and will leave you with a funny aroma that doesn't promise much. Bags will add a color to your cup, but not much after that!
3) More Varieties To Explore
Another thing tea bag consumers suffer from is a lack of variety. Consumers will always be limited to what is offered on the supermarket shelves, and while that may look like a lot, you'll find yourself going through them pretty fast, as well as finding many you do not fancy due to the number two reason mentioned above.
