Hello everyone.

Thanks to this forum I confirmed what it supposed, that most tea bag is very inferior in quality to organic bulk tea. I was wondering if this also applies to rooibo, since I have seen that its pieces are very small, I have consumed organic rooibo and it even looks a lot like what is in the bag, and the color it leaves in the infusion is also very similar between both, then I was wondering if maybe the bag rooibo could be more reliable than bag tea because of its nature. The rooibo that I consume says '' 100% natural, certified ... etc '' is supposed to be good, but nowadays it is impossible to have a minimum of security ...

greeting. :)

Hello, Welcome to TeaForum. When a tea has many small dust particles, that do not beneficially contribute to taste of tea, I will use a stainless infusion ball, and or a filter when pouring. Although I haven’t purchased tea with a lot of dust in years, unless it’s ground matcha. I only use tea bags occasionally when traveling. Recently, I traveled with teabags that had sencha and matcha powder mixed in from Kagoshima Co., delicious. This companies branding/marketing is a little awkward, the tea is called; Birouen Tea House, Oraganic "Smile Tea" ​(Tea bag) with Matcha sprinkles :D .

If you have doubts about a tea, the best approach is to only buy from reputable farmers or vendors that you trust.
