Tea is the second most consumed beverage around the world with it being in almost every culture, in fact we go through millions of tea bags in just one day. Tea is there if your feeling a bit run down, getting in after a long hard day, having a chat with friends or just watching TV, tea is one of our all time favourite friend’s that gets us through day to day life.
But what we don’t know is that our everyday cup of tea actually contains plastic, polypropylene to be exact, which means they are not 100% biodegradable. Tea bags contains lower grade dust and fanning’s from broken down tea leaves. Now switching to loose leaf teas means not only are you getting rid of the plastic, you will be drinking from larger leaves which means more natural oils will be entering your body and don’t forget about all that tasty flavour!
There has been a lot of research done on loose leaf teas, because they hold so many antioxidants they’ve been known to prevent cancers, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, help with stress and acne, aid in weight loss and boost the immune system. They’ve also been found to hold anti aging and anti allergy components, you would hope that anything 100% natural would right?
So with that in mind wouldn’t you rather sip on a lovely flavoursome cup of natural loose leaf tea? So come down and choose a brew of your choice out of our wide selection here at Anna-Loka. 🙂
