The idea of being able to help in exchange for a product that can be enjoyed is easily welcome.

All are available in either loose or tea bag varieties. Tea bags are often favored over the loose ones since disposal is made much easier. There are also others who reuse the bags either by brewing it again (the flavor is still there albeit milder) or by using it as a part of their beauty regimen.
There are also quite a number of companies that create tea bags that are elaborately patterned, thereby making the bags a possible collection, even if already used. It would be sort of similar to some Japanese items, wherein they are still kept and considered as objects of art.
All in all, tea has managed to be recognized in the whole world as a form of beverage that would incorporate tradition, culture and art with it.

Tea something that will always delight one's senses and tempt you to sit down, relax and take a sip from a cup or two.
