Why we love loose-leaf tea:
Loose-leaf tea is a tea that is not brewed in a teabag. When you steep loose-leaf tea, it has room for tea leaves to absorb water and expand as they infuse. This allows the water to flow through the leaves and extract a wide range of vitamins, minerals, flavors, and aromas from the leaves.
Why we don’t love tea bags:
A compound called epichlorohydrin is used to treat many paper tea bags. This is it is a chlorinated epoxy compound used as an industrial solvent. It is a strong skin irritant and carcinogen – carcinogens are agents directly involved in causing cancer.
