Valorie for Bigelow Tea

Debra Amon

You said that all teas have antioxidants. I do know that their have been studies specifically on the high EGCG (antioxidants) in green tea. It is important to get a fresh high quality green tea to access those antioxidants. Where the tea comes from, how it is harvested, and how fresh it is are all things to research when choosing a green tea.


Any true good quality tea does not come in a tea bag. It will come loose leaf and most likely will not be found in your local grocery store! Harney and Sons, Metropolitan, and QTrade are fine quality teas that have won international recognition. The two on your list that are noteworthy are Adagio and Republic. To each their own of course, but "tea bags" are literally the dustings from true tea leaves and are not fresh.

Stephanie Hanson

Well, not all teabags are tea dust. Adagio and Republic are both whole leaf teas in teabags. This list is intended just to be an introduction to folks who might not know a lot about tea and not be ready to order tea.
