Teapigs makes a big thing about using quality real tea. By quality real tea, they mean whole leaf tea, whole leaf herbs, whole berries, whole spices 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. Teapigs don't think that's very nice.
The whole leaves, berries, herbs, flowers and spices in Teapigs' tea temples have been handled gently and with love, to maintain every drop of that precious flavour.
