  • Loose-leaf gives more flavour than tea bags because there is more space to move around and diffuse the flavour.
  • Tea should ideally be brewed for five minutes to allow more flavour and antioxidants. Brew for too long, and the tannin molecules can make the tea taste bitter.

Jamyson Haug

Giovanna Scalzone
