Here at Cup of Tea, we are strong advocates of drinking orthodox-produced loose teas. Their flavours are hard to rival; and, as we explain in our blog on how to make loose tea, they are simple to brew. But, in today's busy world, everyone values those things designed to make life easier. And that is where our premium tea bags come in.

Premium tea bags, such as those in our Ronnefeldt Teavelope range, offer the perfect blend of convenience and quality. All of our premium tea bags contain fannings: the smaller pieces of tealeaf that are separated out from whole and broken leaves during the tea grading process.

Like the leaves that go into our loose teas, the fannings in our premium tea bags are produced using the orthodox method. This means that they derive from handpicked leaves, as opposed to those that have been machine-harvested. It also means that the leaf particles have broken down naturally, rather than being deliberately crushed by machines.

This is where our premium tea bags differ from those you will find on the supermarket shelves. Rather than containing mass-produced tea ‘dust', they are filled with the highest grade of tea particle that a standard tea bag can accommodate. What is more, their gusset fold gives the fannings ample room to unfurl. In consequence of all of this, our premium tea bags brew a cup of tea that is high in quality and exquisite in flavour.

As if this wasn't enough, each Ronnefeldt Teavelope tea bag comes complete with a tag and string. So, you won't even need a spoon.

Although loose tea will always be our preference, we realise that there are times in life when only a tea bag will suffice. On these occasions, we think premium tea bags are the next best thing.

Whatever your tastes, we are bound to stock a tea bag to suit them. For green-tea enthusiasts, there is Ronnefeldt Teavelope Green Angel. For fans of black tea, there is the Ronnefeldt Teavelope Earl Grey. And, for those who prefer something fruity, the Ronnefeldt Teavelope Lemon Sky is sure to go down a treat.
