Tea leaves need room to expand for extracting full-bodied flavor. This is one reason we use organic cotton tea bags instead of tea balls which are not really best for tea brewing. Many standard tea bags and/or tea balls, are low-flow, and require stirring and dunking repeatedly to get the tea to diffuse properly. We believe you get more flavor, more goodness, and more aroma when using roomy, organic, reusable tea bags.
That said, our preferred method for brewing tea is placing loose herbs in vessel with already hot water, steep, and pour finished tea through mesh strainer into cup.
