I admit, I may have been propagandized, but the loose tea really does taste better to me, and since it costs something like $.10 a cup, it's an inexpensive habit (unlike dark belgian chocolate, yum!) Plus I enjoy the ritual of making it.

PS I've also ordered from (pomegranite pear), Harney and Sons (their chocolate mint tea is lovely!), and Peets (a delightful jasmine).

From Adagio's site:
Gourmet vs. Supermarket Tea
Remember when your choice of coffee ranged from Folgers to Sanka? And then Starbucks came along to show how much better it can be. The same is true of tea. The varieties on offer in your supermarket are the bottom of the barrel: low-quality bags containing tea dust - the tiny leaf particles that break off when tea leaves are processed. They'll add color to your cup, but not much flavor. A far cry from the abundance of flavor and intoxicating aroma found in a cup of full-leaf gourmet tea. Chances are, you are no longer drinking Sanka. Once you try our teas, you will not wish to drink anything sold in the supermarket either.
