Free the flavour with a free Mr. Tea!

Northern Tea Merchants is giving away a FREE Mr Tea^ loose leaf infuser worth 4.99 with orders over 25 from our website, using Code: MRTEA, celebrating the benefits of loose leaf tea.

Stocking over 100 different loose leaf teas, Northern Tea Merchants are experts. But why choose loose leaf tea? A few quick points below:

Leaf size

Loose leaf tea is generally larger than that in tea bags. Leaves in tea bags are often broken and crushed, to improve density. When tea is broken it loses some of its essential oils, which add flavour to the tea.

Water circulation

By not being constricted as bagged tea is, loose leaves can swell in hot water, allowing maximum flavour, colour and aroma to be released. Infusers can be used to confine the leaves if it’s the convenience of tea bags that you want, without restricting the leaves nearly as much as tea bags.


Bagged tea is pre-portioned, meaning that you’re using the same amount of leaves however you take your tea – weak or strong. Loose leaf gives you the freedom to use less, or more, avoiding waste and making sure each cup is perfectly suited to your taste.


At Northern Tea Merchants, loose tea is often actually cheaper than tea bags!
