Tea-making In The Dustbin?

In some parts of the world, a proper cup of tea was once brewed using loose leaves. In fact, it was like this everywhere before the early part of the last century, when the tea bag came along. Now this little gimmick has become virtually ubiquitous.

Regardless of how you brew your tea, the article makes for interesting reading. Check it out here.
