Tea in filter bags or only in sheets?

The quality of both packaged and loose teas is quite varied, as is evidenced by the price of tea. Demerit of tea in filter bags is the fact that the client can not see the contents of the bag. This allows the manufacturer to make a tea bag full of dust, which is a residue from the processing of tea and so we can not compare this with high-quality teas. The positive side of tea in filter bags is definitely in the pipeline, since it can not be filtrated.
