Not All Tea Leaf is Made Equal
The Long History of Tea
There is a mind-numbing number of grades when tea masters assess tea leaves; ranging from FTGFOP for whole leaf tea to the humble dust tea. Here at The Good Tea Company, we believe the best flavour comes from whole leaf tea with minimal brokens for a good balance of price to flavour ratio. It does mean we are a bit more expensive compared to the teabags out there, but the flavour you get is uncomparable.
Tea has been around for a long time. Originating from Yunnan, the tea plant traveled across China to Japan before colonialism took these teas to countries like India, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Malaysia and Indonesia. There is more to tea than just a good drink, tea connects us to a history spanning millenniums to cultures far and wide across the world.
Tea bags or loose leaf? Why not both? While we are big believers of brewing our tea in a teapot, we get that life can get busy and hectic and sometimes you just want a quick cup of tea. All of our loose leaf teas come with a biodegradable and environmentally friendly tea bags for you to fill it in when you’re on the go.
