All teas come from the same tea plant called ‘Camellia Sinensis’. The different varieties of tea is based upon how the tea is processed and fermented (more on that later). We here at Home Origins are of the opinion that to make tea that can truly provide all the benefits that tea can provide, you need to use loose leaf or whole leaf tea. Teas processed for tea bags are questionable at the very least (more on this later as well).
Much of what we discuss is geared toward loose leaf tea. Don’t get us wrong, there is a lot of information on all the benefits of tea, why you should drink tea, the different types of tea, on and on …, but when we say tea, we mean loose leaf tea.

Those who really enjoy tea know making tea with loose leaf tea (aka whole leaf tea) is really how one should steep tea. With the right tea infuser, the loose leaf tea has room for the tea leaves to absorb and expand as they infuse the tea. As the water flows around and through the tea leaves, the minerals, vitamins, flavors, and aromas infuse into the tea. For just such an infusion, there is the MyTea Infuser.
