Loose Leaf Tea or Tea Bags: A Comprehensive Guide for Cafés

The café culture is a vibrant tapestry of aromas, flavors, and experiences - with tea steadily claiming its rightful place in the weave.  For many cafe owners, the questions is, should they use Loose Leaf Tea or Tea Bags?  

At Fratello Coffee Roasters, we recognize this evolving dynamic and aim to cater to the growing demographic of tea enthusiasts.  As purveyors of both loose leaf tea and tea bags, we delve into their distinctive qualities, preparation styles, costs, and environmental impacts. We're not just offering beverages; we're brewing experiences for café owners and tea aficionados alike.

Brewing Narratives with Loose Leaf Tea

The tea journey at Fratello Coffee Roasters is about relishing in the uniqueness of each variety, from the sourcing of our Idle Tea, to your cup.

  1. Theatre and Care: Every cup of tea served is a chance for a performance – the measurement, the steeping, the presentation – designed to engage and captivate. This attention to detail underscores your dedication to creating unique, memorable experiences for each customer.  Show your tea clients that you care about their beverages, just as much as you care about coffee beverages.  Utilizing a BrewT or other unique tea infuser is easy to implement. 
  2. Superior Quality and Freshness: The unblended, unflavored characteristics of our teas like the Idle Cream of Assam – a top-tier Organic black tea from the Satrupa Estate in India – testify to the superior quality of loose leaf tea. Every sip is a flavor fest, with smooth orange blossom honey notes infused with a hint of spice.
  3. Variety and Customization: Our offerings showcase the global tea culture. Each type reflects a region's unique palate, like the Idle Earl Grey Cream. Its blend of lemon and orange with floral lavender notes creates a tea symphony that's as diverse as our customer base.
  4. Enhanced Health Benefits: Our loose leaf teas, packed with beneficial compounds and antioxidants, are perfect for those seeking a healthful brew. They release a treasure trove of essential oils and flavors during steeping – a testament to their intact nature.
  5. Sustainability: We're not just contributing to the reduction of single-use tea bag waste, but also empowering our customers to make environmentally conscious choices.

The Benefits of using Tea Bags

  1. Convenience: Tea bags, with their quick and easy preparation, are a practical choice for busy cafés and on-the-go customers.
  2. Portability: Their portable nature makes it possible for customers to carry and enjoy their favorite tea anywhere.
  3. Consistency: Standardized tea bag formulations ensure that each cup of tea brewed offers a relatively predictable taste.
  4. Cost-Effectiveness: Typically, tea bags are more budget-friendly than loose leaf tea. Their mass production and minimal packaging make them an economical choice for cafés on a budget.

However, the cost-effectiveness of tea choices in cafés can vary, depending on the specific brand, quality, and sourcing of both loose leaf tea and tea bags. For example, premium tea bag options are now available that contain high-quality tea, though at a higher price tag.

Navigating Challenges: Integrating Loose Leaf Tea into Your Café's Menu

While the shift from tea bags to loose leaf tea may seem daunting, addressing potential concerns head-on can turn these challenges into opportunities. Let's explore these facets and discover practical solutions:

  1. Time and Efficiency: The Art of Patience

Delighting customers with the exceptional flavor of loose leaf tea may require a few extra minutes of brewing time. But isn't this part of the charm? This period allows anticipation to build and culminates in a superior tea experience. As for efficiency, consider streamlining the brewing process. Efficient steeping methods and pre-portioning loose leaf tea could significantly speed up preparation.

  1. Training and Skill Requirements: The Learning Curve

Certainly, loose leaf tea comes with its learning curve. But think of it as an investment in enhancing your café's reputation for quality. Providing comprehensive training programs and practical resources such as training manuals can help your staff become confident loose leaf tea experts.

  1. Cost Considerations: Quality vs. Quantity

The cost equation of loose leaf tea isn't as simple as it might first appear. Although premium loose leaf teas come with a higher price tag, they also offer the potential for increased revenue. By offering a range of loose leaf options, including some more affordable yet high-quality choices, cafés can cater to a broader customer base.

  1. Storage and Shelf Life: Keeping it Fresh

Storing loose leaf tea may require more thought than tossing a box of tea bags into the cupboard, but the rewards are worth it. Proper storage techniques can preserve freshness and flavor, and the use of airtight containers, along with temperature and light control, can extend the shelf life of your teas.

  1. Customer Preferences: Catering to Curiosity

Understanding and catering to customer preferences are essential. Collecting customer feedback and conducting surveys can reveal a surprising demand for loose leaf tea. Introducing loose leaf tea gradually, alongside familiar tea bag options, can provide customers an opportunity to develop a taste for this high-quality tea experience.

  1. Equipment and Infrastructure: The Right Tools

While the right brewing equipment is necessary, you don't have to break the bank. Collaborating with tea suppliers can help you find suitable equipment options within your café's budget. Moreover, the improved tea quality and customer satisfaction resulting from the investment can certainly pay off in the long run.

  1. Waste Management: Going Green

Loose leaf tea is not just an upgrade in quality; it's also an eco-friendly option. Educating staff and customers about composting used tea leaves can be a part of your café's green initiative. Partnering with local composting facilities or implementing in-house composting can transform your tea waste management into an eco-conscious practice.

The decision between loose leaf tea and tea bags is multi-faceted, influenced by factors like personal preference, desired tea experience, cost considerations, and commitment to sustainability. At Fratello Coffee Roasters, we're dedicated to facilitating these choices – offering a range of Idle Tea options, sharing our brewing expertise, and always ready to overcome any challenges that arise. We believe that every tea leaf has a story to tell, and we're here to help you discover them, one brew at a time.

The History of Oolong Tea

Oolong tea is a partially fermented tea that is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. It is known for its unique flavor, which is somewhere between black tea and green tea, and its beautiful, curled leaves. Oolong tea originated in China during the Ming Dynasty, and it was originally made only for the Emperor and his court. Today, it is produced in many countries around the world and is enjoyed for its flavor and potential health benefits.

Oolong loose leaf tea

What is the history of Oolong tea?

Oolong tea has a long and interesting history. It is believed to have originated in China during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and it was originally known as "black dragon tea." The name "oolong" comes from the Chinese words "wu long," which means "black dragon." 

Oolong tea was first produced in the Fujian province of China, and it was initially made only for the Emperor and his court. Oolong tea was highly prized for its delicate flavour and beautiful appearance, and it became an important part of Chinese tea culture. In the 19th century, oolong tea was introduced to Taiwan, where it was cultivated on a larger scale. Today, oolong tea is produced in many countries around the world, including China, Taiwan, India, and Japan. It is enjoyed for its unique flavour and aroma, as well as its potential health benefits.

Chinese tea farm

What makes Oolong tea unique?

 Oolong tea is a type of tea that is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, just like black, green, and white teas. Oolong tea is unique because it is partially fermented, which gives it a flavor that is somewhere between black tea and green tea. The flavor of oolong tea can be complex and varied, with notes of fruit, flowers, and herbs. Oolong tea is also known for its beautiful, curled leaves and its amber-colored liquor. In addition to its unique flavor and appearance, oolong tea is also believed to have numerous health benefits, such as aiding in weight loss, improving mental alertness, and reducing the risk of heart disease.

Does Oolong tea offer any health benefits? 

There is some evidence to suggest that oolong tea may offer a number of health benefits. Some of the potential benefits of oolong tea include:

  1. Weight loss: Some studies have suggested that oolong tea may help to boost metabolism and increase fat oxidation, which could lead to weight loss.
  2. Improved mental alertness: The caffeine and theanine found in oolong tea may help to improve mental alertness and focus.
  3. Reduced risk of heart disease: Oolong tea is rich in antioxidants, which may help to reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels and reducing inflammation.
  4. Stronger bones: Oolong tea is a good source of bone-building minerals like fluorine, which may help to improve bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
  5. Improved dental health: Oolong tea contains compounds that may help to kill bacteria and inhibit the growth of plaque, which could improve dental health.

It's important to note that more research is needed to fully understand the health benefits of oolong tea, and it's not a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle. As with any dietary supplement, it's important to speak with a healthcare provider before adding oolong tea to your diet.

Idle Tea Spiced Chai Latte : Our Family Recipe

A Spiced Chai latte is the perfect warm tea drink for this time of year when the temperature starts to drop. With its warm spice blend of cardamom, ginger, peppercorn, cinnamon, and other spices, chai lattes are a fall and winter favourite.

Idle Spice Chai Latte

Masala chai tea has been around for millennia. While the recipe that’s loved and enjoyed today is a little different, the foundation remains the same. Black tea, an array of warm spices, and a sweetener are still the building blocks.

As a coffee shop, it’s essential that you carry a good quality chai blend, something that’s easy to make and delicious. Our Idle Tea Chai Latte concentrate makes a perfectly sweet, aromatic chai latte. 

Let’s take a look at the origin of masala chai, what makes our blend so special, and how to prepare it using our blend. Then, we’ll finish off with a few fun variations on the chai latte. 

Idle Tea Spiced Chai Latte

Where did chai originate?

Chai originated in India somewhere between 5000-9000 years ago. Indian royalty figures drank chai, both for medicinal purposes and as a delicacy. Closer to the 19th century, it became a drink that royals and commoners alike could enjoy.

Traditionally, the Indian chai recipe is prepared by steeping black tea and whole spices in hot milk, and sweetening it with sugar or honey. The spices include (but are not limited to) cardamom, cinnamon, whole peppercorn, ginger, and aniseed.

In Indian, the word “chai” actually means “tea.” The term “masala chai” refers to the chai that we know and love, with “masala” denoting the spice blend. 

Chai culture is still hugely popular in India, and is made at home in large kettles and enjoyed in a celebratory context. It’s also popular on the streets, and street vendors, called “chai wallahs,” make hot masala chai on demand. 

Chai lattes as we know them in North America are prepared much differently, though the ingredients remain the same. Milk, black tea, a warm spice blend, and some form of sweetener are crucial for a perfect chai latte.

Spiced Chai Tea mix

What makes the Idle Tea Spiced Chai Mix special?

Our Idle Tea Spiced Chai Mix aims to replicate the authentic recipe as closely as possible. Our blend brews black assam tea with an array of warm signature spices. Those spices include Guatemalan cardamom, Asian ginger, Indonesian cinnamon, Madagascar cloves and Indonesian Lampong black peppercorn. Once the tea and spices have been steeped, we add just the right amount of beetroot sugar for the perfect sweetness.

The chai latte blend is a liquid blend that is conveniently brewed already, with the perfect level of sweetness and spice. All you have to do is combine it with milk in a pitcher, steam it, and top it with some cinnamon or nutmeg.

Our chai latte blend is the same recipe that we developed in the early 2000’s, over 20 years ago when we started making our own line of chai, syrups and smoothies. It used to be called Flavors of Eden, followed by Valleta Flavors. But now it’s under the Idle Tea line, and it now comes in a recyclable bottle. It’s the same great blend with a new look and label.

Idle Tea Chai Mix

How to make a chai latte

Our chai latte blend makes it incredibly easy to make the perfect chai latte. Pour 1 part Idle Tea Spiced Chai Mix into a pitcher, followed by two parts milk or a non-dairy substitute. Steam it in the pitcher until it reaches 140 degrees F. Pour it into a cup and top with cinnamon or nutmeg.  The same ratio can also be served cold over ice.

Chai latte variations

The flavours of masala chai pair wonderfully with other flavours, so you’re not just limited to chai lattes alone. Here are 3 popular takes on the classic drink.

Dirty chai latte

A dirty chai latte is simply a chai latte with an espresso shot added. With familiar warm spices like ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon, it’s almost reminiscent of a gingerbread latte or a pumpkin spice latte. 

To make it, just steam the correct ratio of milk and chai mix until it reaches 140 degrees F. Then, pull an espresso shot into a cup. Pour the steamed chai over the espresso shot, and top with cinnamon or nutmeg. 

Chai tea mix

Chai apple cider

Apple cider beautifully complements the flavours of cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom. 

Simply pour 2 parts apple cider with 1 part Idle Tea Spiced Chai Mix into a pitcher, and steam until it reaches 140 degrees F. Pour into a cup, and top with cinnamon.

Chai hot chocolate

The chai hot chocolate is an experience similar to a spicy hot chocolate. The ginger and black peppercorn add a spicy, zesty kick. 

To make it, pour 1 tbsp of chocolate syrup into a cup. Into a metal milk pitcher, pour one part Idle Tea Spiced Chai Mix and 2 parts milk or non-dairy alternative. Steam it until it reaches 140 degrees F. Pour a small amount over the chocolate syrup, mixing well. Then, pour in the rest of the steamed chai. Top with nutmeg. 

Warm, spicy, and irresistable

Spiced Chai Latte

There’s nothing more comforting and warming than a chai latte with a dash of cinnamon on top. It’s the quintessential cozy drink, perfect for the colder fall and winter months. 

Make sure to seize the opportunity and offer this incredibly popular drink to your customers. It’s easy and quick to make, it makes for a perfectly balanced drink, and best of all, it’ll keep your line moving while keeping your customers in good spirits. Happy chai season!

Health Benefits of Turmeric

We all know turmeric as that vibrant golden-yellow spice used in curry dishes. But did you know that turmeric is loaded with health benefits? Turmeric contains antioxidants that fend off diseases, slow the aging process, and reduce inflammation. Best of all, it makes a delicious herbal tea.  We dive deeper into the health benefits of turmeric in our blog post below. 

Let’s face it: sometimes we have to go off coffee for a while. If you overdo it, coffee and caffeine in general can be addictive and lead to withdrawal and headaches. For some, it can also cause heartburn and jitters if you’re drinking multiple cups a day. If you need to lay off coffee for a while, our Idle Golden Turmeric Latte powder could be the fix for you. Just mix it up in some hot milk or a non-dairy alternative, and you’ll have a perfectly sweet and savoury warm bevvy. 

Let’s take a quick look at the main ingredient of our herbal tea blend: turmeric.

Turmeric health benefits

Turmeric contains high levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants are naturally occurring substances found in plants that reduce oxidative stress in the human body. Oxidative stress leads to cell damage, and over time, cell damage in our bodies can lead to disease. Oxidation is caused by free radicals that roam around our bodies. Antioxidants neutralize these free radicals, halting the oxidation process.

If you live in the big city, trying to get antioxidant rich foods in your diet is a great idea. Big cities expose us to poor air quality, as we walk past traffic-dense areas and inhale second-hand tobacco smoke. Poor air quality is one of the biggest causes of oxidative stress. You can combat it, in part, by eating antioxidant rich foods.


The active ingredient in turmeric is a powerful antioxidant called curcumin. This particular antioxidant is an anti-inflammatory. While inflammation in the body is a natural occurrence, it’s chronic inflammation that we want to avoid. When we get an infection or we’re hurt, inflammation kicks in to speed up the healing process. Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, causes a number of diseases over time. It can lead to heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and regenerative conditions.

Health experts are particularly interested in the effects of turmeric on cancer patients. Early trials show that curcumin contributes to cancer cell death, reduced growth of blood vessels in tumors, and reduced metastasis (spread). While studies are still underway, there is evidence that curcumin neutralizes free radicals that cause cancer. 

Curcumin may also promote brain health and reduce depression. It is shown to improve the levels of BDNF, a protein that repairs and regenerates neurons in the brain. 

There is evidence that black pepper may enhance and activate the powerful antioxidants in turmeric. Black pepper contains the natural compound piperine, which itself has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. 

Do cinnamon and ginger have health benefits, too?

Our Idle Golden Turmeric Latte powder also contains two other antioxidant rich spices: ginger and cinnamon. 

Ginger contains a natural oil called gingerol, a known antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, ginger is known to help with tummy trouble, in particular indigestion, nausea, and intestinal inflammation. Ginger happens to be in the same plant family as turmeric, which may explain why the flavours complement each other. 

Cinnamon also contains antioxidants in the form of polyphenols, which perform similarly to curcumin and gingerol. In addition, cinnamon contains the natural compound cinnamaldehyde, which may fight bacterial and fungal infections. It not only provides a delicious flavour, but it also provides sweetness without any added sugar. 

This leads us to the final ingredient on the list: coconut sugar.

Is coconut sugar healthier than table sugar?

While coconut sugar has the same amount of calories, it has a few benefits over table sugar. Coconut sugar is the dehydrated sap of coconut trees, making it a natural, unprocessed form of sugar. 

It’s also lower on the glycemic index than table sugar, meaning it won’t spike your blood sugar like table sugar. It contains a fibre called inulin, which is responsible for keeping the blood

sugar low. This can be helpful for people with both types of diabetes. And, unlike table sugar, it contains iron, zinc, calcium and potassium. While coconut sugar has some benefits, it’s still sugar after all, so don’t go overboard with it. 

In a nutshell

Here are your health benefits in one neat package. Turmeric contains a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation, slowing the aging process and preventing disease. Ginger offers antioxidants too, and maintains a healthy gut. Cinnamon also contains antioxidants, it can help us fight chest infections, and it provides sweetness without any added sugar. Coconut sugar is a natural alternative to table sugar, and it won’t spike blood sugars as high as regular sugar. 

What are some other antioxidant rich foods?

Other antioxidant rich foods that fight free radicals include blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. You can also find them in dark leafy greens, such as spinach, kale, and broccoli. If you’re looking for another antioxidant rich beverage, try out our Idle Matcha Tea Powder

How do I make a golden milk latte?

Place 1 teaspoon of the Idle Golden Turmeric Latte powder in a mug, followed by 30 ml of water. Stir it together to make a syrup, and set aside. Heat 200 mL of milk or a non-dairy alternative to 160 degrees F (hot, but not boiling). Stir the hot milk into the syrup, and mix well. Sprinkle some more of the powder on top for garnish, and enjoy.

What are some other uses for this powder?

Our Idle Golden Turmeric Latte powder can be used in hot and cold beverages. You can easily ice your golden turmeric latte by pouring cold milk into the syrup instead. The powder dissolves well in frozen smoothies as well.

You can also use the powder as a health boost to baked goods. Just place a teaspoon of the powder into shortbread cookie dough, muffin batter and pancake batter, for a beautiful, golden hue.
