What are tea bags made of?
At T2 we value sustainable manufacturing practices, a commitment we take seriously. Our endeavours in this area have awarded us B Corp certification, reinforcing our core values.
All T2 teabags are made entirely from plant-based sources. Manufactured using corn starch derivatives, our teabags and the string are made from polylactic acid (PLA). The tag is made from paper and printed with vegetable ink, and the bags are heat sealed so no glue or staples are used.
Are tea bags compostable?
Specifically, that depends on the composting environment, but generally speaking T2 plastic free tea bags can be biologically degraded in industrial compositing conditions.
Do tea bags expire?
While all our high quality teas from all over the world are perfectly packaged for a fresh-as-a-daisy cuppa every time, tea does have a shelf life. Each T2 teabag pack has a best before date stamped on it so you can be sure to enjoy the ultimate flavoursome freshness from every thirst-quenching cuppa.
Which tea bags are biodegradable?
Plastic tea bags often contain polypropylene or cellulose and are not environmentally sustainable. But T2 plastic free teabags and teabags made from paper or silk are. As a B Corp certified company, T2 is committed to environmentally sustainable practices - from the farming of our quality teas all over the world to the tea bags and all the product packaging we use! That’s not just tea bags, but all the packaging on all our loose leaf teas, teawares and gift wrapping too.
As our tea bags are made from plant-based sources, the tea bags, strings and labels are entirely biodegradable within industrial composting conditions.
While we all wish that the fabulous, full-bodied flavours and each replenishing, reviving or relaxing tea-drinking experience would last forever, we certainly don’t want the little bundles they are packaged in stick around for that long! This is why we use plant-based products in our plastic free tea bag manufacturing processes, for the good of the planet and for your health.
Are tea bags good for plants?
All tea originates from plants, and our tea bags are made entirely from plant-based products. White, black, oolong, green, and pu-erh tea is farmed from the camellia sinensis plant, while other teas have herbal or fruit origins, but are still plant-based.
So whether the warm and nourishing tea which best quenches your thirst comes from a robust Irish Breakfast Teabag, a herbal tisane such as a Just Chamomile Teabag or a zesty Lemongrass and Ginger Teabag you can then put the used tea bags into your garden compost.
Ask any gardening guru, they’ll tell you that tea bags in garden compost help to retain moisture, suppress weeds, nourish and oxygenate the soil while adding essential minerals back into the ground!
How to make iced tea with teabags?
Make a splash with one of our most popular tisanes, Packs A Peach, for this peachy-keen brew is the perfect tea to refresh you on a scorching summer day.
We’ve also popped the delightfully fruity brew Southern Sunrise, and the fresh’n’zesty Lemongrass And Ginger Herbal Tisane into the tea bag realm so you can enjoy tantalising icy cold tea bag teas when only a long cool drink will quench your thirst.
Put your T2 Jug-a-lot or T2 Teamaker to work using our delicious iced tea recipes and substituting tea bags for tea leaves, or dingle-dangle your teabags in any receptacle suitable for iced tea-making minus the infuser for lip-smacking, super cool and delish summertime teas!
Can you use teabags in a tea pot?
Of course you can! If you prefer the easy simplicity of tea bags to loose leaf tea you can throw your tea bags into the teapot just as easily.
When there’s no loose leaf tea in the pantry and you’re enjoying a relaxing afternoon tea party with your besties or making an after-dinner digestive cuppa for your dinner guests, it can be easier to pop a number of teabags into a large teapot rather than making individual cups of tea.
What are the best tea bags?
At T2 we've taken all the much-loved crowd favourites from our iconic loose leaf tea selections and bundled them into neat little tea bags so you can enjoy the convenience of the best high quality teas wherever you go. Combined with our healthy, plant-based, plastic free tea 'bags', you can always look forward to a perfect cup of tea!
