To appreciate the individuality and complexitiy of loose leaf tea, the preparation is certainly more complicated, than simply placing a bag in hot water. You need a little more time and the right equipment such as a tea strainer and on some ocassions even a fine scale. It is up to you how much tea you would like to use for the preparation and what else you would like to add. Thus loose tea offers tea drinks more individuality than tea bags. In addition, you can decide between different types of preparation, such as the classic tea strainer, a special tea pot or the preparation with a Samovar.
