So, we've all heard this before. Some people swear by their brewing method and are convinced that it creates a far more palatable tea for consuming.
Now that I've found a rather large group of tea enthusiasts, I'd love to hear your opinions on it. Is there any validity to the claims of "the looser the leaf, the better the tea"? I will say that I prefer any method over tea bags because I taste more bitter notes in the stronger black teas I like when I use a bagged brand.
So, which is it? Bags, balls, or nothing at all? Feel free to get into the science behind your position if you want. There's PLENTY there to discuss.
