Tea bags or Loose Leaf teas?
It is difficult to know what it is inside a tea bag.
Loose teas contain large and whole tea leaves meaning that they keep the tea plant’s powerful antioxidants. So drinking tea is really healthy. For instance, black tea is becoming more and more popular due to the recent studies which have shown that this kind of tea has in its composition 10 times the amount of antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables.
All teas extracted from Camellia Sinensis plant are rich in polyphenols, which is a type of antioxidant. These amazing natural nutrients search for cell-damaging free radicals in the body and detoxify them, which actually means that black tea is 10 times more efficient than veggies.
There are many studies about tea which conclude that tea has a role to play in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, boosting the immune system or aiding with weight loss. There are also researchers who believe that tea has a role to play in preventing certain cancer types.
Loose teas are free of fannings and dust which means that the health benefits aren’t lost. It is very easy to understand that more leafy surface area means more natural oils and health-boosting natural chemicals. Tea bags contain only fannings and dusts which have lost most of their natural properties in the slicing and dicing procedure.
