When you think of tea, you often think of those little sacks of leaves and spices you get from the market called tea bags. But what if I told you there was a whole new way to think of tea and it gave you a lot more benefits Preparing tea the old fashion way has unfortunately become a lost art. Commonly referred to as lose leaf tea, this type of tea has a process that may take a few extra steps, but the benefits are well worth it. With tea leaves on my mind, I went to a tea shop that the Guru of tea in Chinatown himself, Uncle G, prepares his tea, Vital Tea Leaf.
With the help of Herman Duang, who works and was trained at Vital Tea Leaf, I decided to bring this hidden art form to light and try it for myself. Check out my video to get the how to on preparing lose leaf tea and you to can be the Doru of Tea. Get it, got it, guru!
