Whole Leaf Teas, also called as loose leaf or full leaf teas, are the finest teas made from freshly hand-picked tender tea leaves. In contrast, CTC tea or the tea found in tea bags usually consist of tea fragments or fannings.
Freshly Picked Whole Tea Leaves
Tea bagged teas contain tea fragments or fannings (also referred to as dusts) which are considered as rejects during the processing of whole leaf teas. Tea dusts give a stronger and quicker brew, but lack the subtlety and completeness of the whole leaf teas. Whole leaf tea is the most natural form of tea made from full tea leaves. Whole leaf teas are produced through orthodox tea production method, which is the original method of making teas. It is very popular in the European countries due to the fact that it gives you the full taste, flavour and health benefits of tea.

Moreover, whole Leaf teas can be used for multiple infusions. Depending on the type and quality of the whole leaf tea, it can be normally brewed from 2 to 4 times, with every steeping exposing slightly different character of the tea. Whole leaf teas are costlier as compared to CTC or the low quality tea dusts. However, you can brew whole leaf teas multiple times to offset the premium price that you pay for it.
