The 10 Best Loose Leaf Teas
This wiki has been updated 14 times since it was first published in February of 2019. It's perhaps the most beloved beverage in the world, but when placed in bags, tea has environmental, and even potential health, impacts that many find undesirable. That's why drinkers turn to these loose leaf varieties, from the perennially popular green to niche herbal types. Although any final choice is subjective, the ones here have been known to please both connoisseurs and casual imbibers. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

We looked for teas that are fresh and enjoyable cup after cup, ultimately settling on Vahdam Himalayan Green, Harney & Sons Paris, and Barry's Gold Blend as top choices. Each may have its own flavor profile, but they are all high-quality and, as a bonus, not overly expensive. We also selected the Tea Drops Instant Assortment Box even though it's somewhat gimmicky; some drinkers do enjoy the convenience, and it's an interesting gift idea for the tea lover who has it all.
