Frequently Asked Questions

 

What are the advantages of buying tea in bulk?

- Bulk tea has more beneficial health properties as it is less manipulated and altered than bagged tea. The leaves of bulk tea are more whole, so when they come into contact with the water when infused, the vitamins and antioxidants they contain expand much better.
- Through bulk tea we can appreciate the quality of the tea at a glance, enjoying the smell, colour and shape of the leaves. What you see is what you get.
- Bulk tea is totally natural, its flavour comes directly from the herbs and plants and not through chemicals as happens in many cases with tea bags. Bulk tea does not lose aroma, flavour notes and the leaves are not crushed like bagged tea.
- One of the most important reasons why we decided to offer teas and infusions in bulk is to respect and care for the environment. By buying tea in bulk we reduce the amount of unnecessary packaging in which it is usually presented. We eliminate both plastic and the enormous amount of waste from the individual tea bags that we usually find in conventional supermarkets.

What are the advantages of buying organic tea?

- Organic tea ensures that the entire cultivation process has been carried out with only natural substances, thus guaranteeing a pure and natural product with all its properties unaltered. By organic we certify that no pesticides or fertilisers have been used in this complex tea production process.
- In the cultivation of non-organic teas, an enormous amount of chemical substances are usually applied to the soil in order to make the tea grow faster and produce more, and all these harmful particles end up in our organism.
- In short, organic tea is healthier, more natural and therefore better for the human body. At Replantea we only choose organic teas in bulk.
