Loose leaf tea is self-explanatory by name. Larger tea leaves indicate a longer brewing time period, although the tea leaves we use are smaller than most in loose blends. Because of the fine size, our tea strainer is also recommended for brewing loose leaf tea. English Tea Store brand loose tea is made in India, Sri Lanka, or Kenya and packaged in the US in our Pittsburgh warehouse. While not all of our bagged varieties come as loose tea, we offer multiple kinds of English breakfast, Earl Grey, white tea, flavored black tea, Assam, Darjeeling, and gunpowder green tea in 8 oz. pouches. In addition, we carry loose tea from brand names like PG Tips, Twinings, and Taylors of Harrogate.
