Odd isn't it that people make their choice of tea on the basis of convenience.The vast majority of tea bags are filled with low quality CTC, dust or fannings, and from whichever tea area they come from, they all taste uncannily similar. They infuse quickly and yield a tannic dark coloured brew desperately needing milk and sugar to make them palatable. Why be put off by the real thing, whole leaf tea, just because you have to make a slight effort. In fact, it's simpler, less expensive and opens up a whole new world with centuries of history. You can buy infusers, strainers, and empty tea bags, but you don't have to bother. Lots of quite cheap teapots have built-in strainers at the spout. Don't be lazy or bloody minded, or you'll lose the opportunity of discovering this wonderful world of tea. There are, it has to be said, some tea bags specially manufactured to accommodate whole leaf teas, and preserve their subtlety of flavour. It's easier , however, to be lazy and drink real tea the traditional way from so many growers.

If you have a Restaurant or Tea Room, we highly recommend the use of Fine & Noble luxury pyramid tea bags. For sheer quality and convenience they are unbeatable. No traditional paper tea bag comes close. We've just negotiated with our suppliers a special price for caterers. To achieve a really competitive deal, we're offering each type of tea in lots of 100 bags without the posh packaging. They'll come, however, in practical re-sealable polybags. Come see details on our site at www.highteas.co.uk
