Raw tea or loose tea?
I have used tea strainers but stopped doing it lately because I read a study where using strainers allowed tea-bits in the tea,and lead in the leaves stays in the leaf and get ingested.
They say that tea using bags didnt have traces of lead (however you got slightly less EGCg as well).
None of this would matter to me if I were well, but because im trying to get my immune system in top condition for what I can afford, its actually cheaper to get the bags.
I hate the taste of Traditional Medicinals, but the formulas are nice.
I simply cannot afford all organic, especially with a family. I agree its preferred, in a perfect world.
Too bad it isnt a law.
