What Our Tea Bags Are Made Of

Tea bags often get a bad rap for creating too much waste. And as a tea company that’s trying to leave the earth a little more beautiful than we found it, we went the extra mile to find materials for tea bags that wouldn’t end up in a landfill. When you steep our tea bags, you can drink easy, knowing every element of the packaging is zero waste:

 

BOX

Made from 100% recycled cardboard and fully recyclable.
 
 

ENVELOPE

Made from compostable film that’s built with two layers: one from cellophane made from regenerated cellulose, and one with a resin named BioPBS (bio-based polybutylene succinate) derived from natural sources, including sugarcane, cassava, and corn.
 
 

TEA BAG, STRING & TAG

Made from 100% biodegradable sugarcane PLA, a biobased and biodegradable plastic produced with renewable biomass feedstocks.
 
 

TEA

Made from nothing but the good ol’ leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant! Besides being eco-friendly, the tea bags are breathable enough to steep the tea evenly and strong enough to endure multiple infusions.
