They are two main ways tea can be purchased: In tea bags or as loose leaves.
For tea bags, the advantage is that it is hassle free! Just drop a tea bag into your cup of hot water and you are good to go! Be make sure to get those that come in unbleached tea bags as bleached teabag may undergo a process that involves using chlorine!
