Loose Tea Loses Flavour
It not only loses flavour, but worse than this, loose
tea takes on new odors, such as coal oil, molasses,
onions, coffee, soap, etc.,—to say nothing of
its exposure to the sun, dust, dirt and
air.   Therefore for your protection
it told only in scaled lead packets—never in bulk.
