  • What is the difference between loose leaf & tea bags?

    What is loose leaf tea? Loose leaf are large loose tea leaves that are stored usually in a tea tin and then served in one of our tea infusers. You can choose how little or how much tea you would like in your drink.

A benefit of our fuso tea bags is that they are biodegradable, which means they are capable of being decomposed by the action of biological agents, especially bacteria. Material that,…
