In order for the ful benefits of the tea to happen you aren't supposed to pour boiling water over it, just really hot. Now the second part is that loose leaf tea is many times more effective than that bagged crap. The loose leaf tea is just rolled up, not chopped up and thrown in a bag. As you steep the tea the leaves unroll and expand to their original size and thats when they release the antioxidants and other good stuff.
Besides, mass produced bagged tea uses the worst quality available in order to sell it cheap. It's not rocket science.
