Los Angeles is known for its heat and seemingly constant summertime living. But just because the weather is usually hot in LA that doesn’t mean that LA residents don’t enjoy their tea. Whether hot or iced, tea is still very popular here, and just like many people across North America, the people in LA are always looking to expand their tea horizons.
So with that in mind, we’d like to introduce you to the loose leaf teas from Tea Sante. These teas have more flavour, retain their essential oils and have a strong scent because they are not broken down too much, which is the case with bagged teas. The key difference between loose leaf and bagged teas is that bagged teas are made from the dust and fannings of tea leaves rather than the full leaves.
Apart from an improved taste and aroma, loose leaf also offers more health benefits because you get more of the nutrients from the leaves. All the antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that improve your overall health are just more abundant in loose leaf teas.
With that in mind, it is clear why loose leaf is the way to go for your next tea purchase. Though if you don’t know where to start, we have put together this list of the top 10 loose leaf tea in Los Angeles to introduce you to some incredible teas you have to try.
