As far as black bagged tea, Lipton Black Pearl, Twinings Prince of Wales, and Harney are acceptable. But really, if you’re getting decent bagged tea, you could be paying less for better looseleaf tea. Good bagged tea is rare, and generally overpriced.

Especially when you go out to eat!

I do loose, loose in bags, bagged teas – i want to try them all! each i think has their time and place – bagged teas work well at work (premium and regular)

…buy empty bags and fill them myself. allows me to control the dosage, something that I am very particular about. But that is also connected with the fact that I am not a big fan of ‘fannings’ and mostly go for unbroken leafs or buds.

I prefer to use an infuser basket but for when that isn’t convenient I use a product called Tea Pocket to create my own tea bags. They work great. I used them to create little party favors over the holidays. Found some online editable teabag envelopes to customize with the blend name to finish them off. Here’s the link for the fill-it-yourself bags although they seemed to be sold out right now.

I suppose a crafty person could stitch up something similar but I think I’ll leave that for others.

I’m with AmazonV i like it all in most forms.. Bags come in handy on day trips. lunch out. going to the folks house to help with chores. (coffee drinkers).. good tea leaves make good tea dust.LoL maybe i will use loose as often as I can and when I have near by. but i have some bags stashed away at work for that afternoon that i need a break and a pick me up.. At the folks house.. but this may change with a new Kamjove press art tea pot/brewer for loose leaf tea that is a little small for home use but great for their house.. here is my video of it

any way i don’t look down my nose at bagged tea i just know there is a time and place for them..
I like Stash, Red Rose, Tazo, and others i wont turn them down if given to me.

I prefer loose leaf but definitely still use bagged tea. Especially for things like chamomile or other herbals.

I’m of “if I like it, I’ll buy and drink it”. Doesn’t matter what form it comes in as long as it tastes good.
