3 hints to spot low quality tea. Secrets Reveal 

Many tea products in the market today are of low quality



That is because they prioritize "Minimal grams per sachets", majorly sells "Tea Shreads" and "Tea Dust" for all types of tea. 



By using tea rolling machines to shred low-quality tea leaves into smaller pieces and sell at a cheaper price but in batches.



Similar to selling breadcrumbs while asking for a loaf of bread, but now it's called "Tea Shreds."



Low-quality tea is bitter, very astringent, and light with a standard serving portion.



Although it may have a deceiving scent, colour, and unrecognizable tea-leaf shapes, it does not provide a satisfying tea experience.



Tea dust is another by-product of tea leaves that is often found in tea bags along with shredded tea leaves.



Tea dust is the same as leftovers that you don't want to consume when enjoying a cup of tea.



For those who want to enjoy premium tea, it is best to avoid tea that contains tea dust and weighs only 3 grams full of tea shreds.



Instead, opt for tea sachets that consist mostly of whole tea leaves and weigh around 5 grams.



This way, you can consume all the nutritional benefits of tea.


Warning: Don't Get Ripped Off. Follow these 5 Guidelines


✅ 5 grams of Tea Sachets


A minimum of 5 grams of tea leaves can make a tea flavourful. No matter it is hot or cold brews, the tea can maintain its colour, aroma, and taste. 



✅ Whole Tea Leaves


Tea sachets containing whole tea leaves are of higher value as they provide richer aromas and flavours without the astringent aftertaste. 



✅ Perform Tea filtration process to minimize tea dust during production


Using whole tea leaves results in a better tea experience compared to tea dust and tea shreds. By trying our tea, you won't sip a mouthful of tea dust and shreds. 



✅ Made in Hong Kong


When processes are completed in Hong Kong, we have bought machines for Tea Sachets' in-house production, and undergone tea filtration processes. 



✅ A rich and recognizable aroma on every sip, and also provide multiple infusions


When brewing our Peach Oolong Tea with hot water, the oolong tea leaves slowly spread out. 



Resulting in a more flavourful colour and aroma compared to those found in the market.



By using whole tea leaves, we are able to provide a better tea experience and maintain the true essence of tea.

Why choose Tea Sachets?


1️⃣ Contains "Whole Leaf"

When Tea Sachets contain Whole Leaf, it is a better option than "Tea Dust" tea bags.



The reason is that whole leaf can maintain its rich taste when brewing with water.



2️⃣ Convenience

Tea sachets are better when brewing tea without tea wares available, such as a tea bowl, infuser, or an electric scale.



Best alternative when you only have a teacup or bottle



Tea-lovers can simply dip the tea sachet into their bottle or cup, then infuse it with hot or cold water to enjoy.

What's great about Cold Brew Tea?


Relieve stress, reduce insomnia, and stabilize emotions.

Upon cold brewing tea, it will slowly release Theanine, a nutrient found in tea leaves that can relieve stress, reduce insomnia, and stabilize emotions.


Enhance natural sweetness

In terms of taste, Theanine can reduce caffeine's impact, bringing out a sweet aftertaste, making the drink more delicious.


As the caffeine contraction is limited, having a cup of cold brew tea at night won't affect your sleeping habits much.


Enhance vitamin C to be healthy

After brewing at water temperatures below 30 °C, the vitamin C is conserved, making it a healthy drink to enjoy.



Cold brew tea is convenient to serve when greeting guests, as it can be prepared beforehand and served immediately.



It's a refreshing and healthy option that provides numerous health benefits.

History & Evolution of Tea

In the early years, tea was primarily used to regulate body temperature and awaken the mind, making it a perceived healthy drink.



In the 17th century, tea was further accepted as a supplement, and by the 18th century, it was socially accepted as a habit for healthy living.



Tea offers various benefits in regulating bodily functions.



It contains antioxidants to improve the immune system, tea polyphenols can help maintain brain and cardiac functions, and theanine can relieve stress.



While tea provides numerous health benefits for both physical and mental health, it should not be defined as a medicine to cure diseases.



It is a nutritious consumption product that can support overall well-being.

Who invented tea sachets?

Well....tea bags were invented unintentionally in the 1908s by a New York tea merchant named Thomas Sullivan.



He used a silk mini bag to contain tea leaves for convenience when sending tea samples to a potential customer.



The customer misunderstood and dipped the mini bag into a teapot, finding the design convenient and flexible.



Tea bags then became popular in the market. Later, a merchant in Boston named William Hermanson revised the materials to fiber, which could resist higher temperatures for tea brewing.



After several material improvements, nylon and non-woven fabric were derived and appreciated for their quality and appearance.



PLA is another material that has been invented, but its adoption is expensive due to the need for more complicated equipment.



As a result, many manufacturers outsource their supply chain to China to reduce costs.



Tea sachets contain whole tea leaves, while tea bags mostly contain tea dust and shredded tea leaves. Therefore, it's important to choose wisely when purchasing.



At Chinese Tea Gallery, we persist in tea sachet production in Hong Kong and continue to adopt new technologies for tea sachet materials.
