My favorite type of tea is loose leaf. There’s something really cool about putting the leaves in a strainer that will steep in your cup. Additionally, there are so many beautiful teapots and tea accessories that can be used when working with this kind of tea If you are using a built-in infuser, it’s important to make sure the holes aren’t too big. Oftentimes parts of the leaves can escape the infuser and it is not a pleasant experience to be sipping hot tea and all of a sudden you feel something small and sharp hit your tongue.
The tea pictured here is Lavender Dreams White Tea from Teavana. You can purchase it here. It is delicious and perfect for nighttime indulgence.
