Ten Ren's Whole-Leaf tea bag series offers tea bag enjoyment in a whole new way. Whole-Leaf tea bags are manufactured with a specially designed new machine that allows the whole tea leaf, as found in our loose tea products, to be placed into a tea bag instead of having to cut the tea leaves into a smaller size. Some tea connoisseurs believe that whole tea leaves are one of the best ways to enjoy tea. Green tea is an unfermented tea. When brewed,it has a light greenish-yellow color, a fresh flavor, and a pure aroma. The water used to steep green tea should be about 160°F or 70°C to prevent scalding the leaves. Available in boxes of 18 bags. Dimensional shipping weight is 0.72 lb.
