What are tea bags made of?
Our company is committed to environmentally sustainable manufacturing with B-Corp certification, so all T2 tea bags are made from plant-based sources, just like tea!
Our heat-sealed tea bags and the string contain corn starch derivatives (PLA) along with paper (the tag) and vegetable ink (the printing on the tag). Aside from the tealicious loose leaf tea inside the bags, that’s all our tea bags are made of!
Do tea bags contain plastic?
Plastic tea bags? No way! We can’t speak for anyone else but all trusty T2 teabags are made entirely from plant-based sources which are plastic free and biodegradable. There might be a T in plastic, but there’s no place for plastic in T2 tea bags!
Are tea bags compostable?
Generally speaking, tea bag biodegradability depends on the tea bags and the composting environment. At T2 we take environmental sustainability seriously, so our high quality teabags are made from corn starch derivates and zero plastic which means they will break down in industrial composting conditions within 45 to 90 days.
The specific time it takes tea bags to biodegrade in garden compost bins depends on the composting conditions which may not be as optimum as industrial composting conditions, but our environmentally friendly tea bags will break down in your garden compost over time.
Do tea bags expire?
Like most pure and natural things, tea has a shelf life, albeit quite a long one in the right conditions. Our high quality tea bags are perfectly packaged for ultimate freshness in every cup! We’ve popped a best-before stamp on the packaging to remind you to get sipping before nature’s clock stops ticking!
