Loose Leaf Teas

Did you know that tea is not meant to be put in bags? Especially the traditional, and extremely common, flat tea bags (or even small tea balls)?

Full leaf (or loose leaf) teas need room to expand during steeping for full-bodied flavor. Due to the size constraints of teabags, only the lowest, and therefore smallest, tea leaves are included. In fact, some may be right to argue that there aren’t any leaves in bags because most bags are just the "dust and fannings" (the lowest grade of tea) from broken tea leaves.

Loose leaf is vastly superior to broken leaf, dust and fannings. Broken leaves have already lost much of their essential oils and aroma and, therefore, their taste. When steeped, they release more tannins than loose leaf tea, resulting in bitter astringent cups.

Loose leaf teas provide you with more flavor, aroma, antioxidants, and pleasure than the tiny leaf bits and stale tea dust in most mass-produced tea bags. Typical tea bags are produced on an industrial scale and may sit in a warehouse or on a shelf for a long time before you ever get them.

By comparison, our loose leaf teas are carefully selected and hand-crafted by tea masters. We then micro-blend and package only small batches assuring you get the best loose leaf tea from each harvest.

At The Spice & Tea Shoppe we never compromise on quality and strive to offer you only the best loose leaf tea because we feel you deserve it.

  • Chai is steeped in a rich history. The name “chai” is actually the Hindi word for “tea”, which was derived from “cha”, the Chinese word for “tea”. In this case, the Hindi term chai means a mix of spices steeped into a tea-like beverage. Recipes for chai vary across continents, cultures, towns and families. The traditional ingredients of a spiced tea blend usually include black tea mixed with strong spices. The spiced tea mixture is typically brewed strong with milk and sweetened with sugar or honey. However, the milky sweet tea treat we order in coffee and tea shops today has very little in common with the origins of Indian chai. Pair our Assam Chai Base black tea with our hand blended Authentic Chai Masala and you will experience the truly incredible flavors of real Indian street chai.

  • Chicory root is used in roasted ground form as a substitute for, or additive to, coffee. Native to Europe, it was brought to North America in the 1700s and is now well established across the continent but during the American Civil War, Louisianans looked to adding chicory root to their coffee when Union naval blockades cut off the port of New Orleans. With shipments coming to a halt, desperate New Orleanians looking for their coffee fix began mixing things with coffee to stretch out the supply. Hence, the invention of Chicory Coffee.
