At Tea Pigs, we make a big thing about using quality real tea. By quality real tea, we mean whole leaf tea, whole leaf herbs and whole flowers. Not the dusty stuff you’ll find in regular paper teabags. It's all about the flavour. The tea in regular tea bags has been squashed, chopped and manhandled so, by the time it reaches your cup, almost all the flavour is lost. We don't think that's very nice. The whole leaves, herbs and flowers in our tea temples have been handled gently and with love, to maintain every drop of that precious flavour. Our teas come in our special tea “temple” – a biodegradable mesh bag that gives the whole leaves lots of room to infuse. Looks pretty too. Loose tea without the fuss.
