I'm vehemently opposed to teabags because:
a) I mistrust the chemicals used to make and treat them, some of which must leach into your drink
b) the tea inside them is out of sight and possibly of unknown quality after treatments
c) the bag itself decomposes slowly, by its very nature, and the polymers used could present an environmental hazard.
Our tea is made from loose tea, that hopefully contains fewer chemicals than the bags. However, in recent years, we no longer see real tea in the supermarkets (AlphaMega, for example, stopped selling both Typhoo and their Tesco brand some years ago). I recently found some Typhoo tea in a local supermarket but it was reconstituted and sold for €4.50 for a 250 g packet!!! We are now constrained to drink M&S reconstituted tea at less than half that price, but I question its real quality. I miss good, old-fashioned tea leaves that make a proper brew.
Ther's a place called Ristretto shop in Larnaca sells leaf tea, black, green , white etc.
It's somewhere near the Livhadiotis Hotel.
Don't know the prices, i might be going in to Larnaca tomorrow so if my puddled old noggin remembers i'll have a look.
Hell, if a man can't have a good brew.
Possibly a move to India, or Sri Lanka might solve your problem, perhaps a bit extreme, but definitely a solution (Of tea)
Why limit the choice?
