Loose leaf tea is a fantastic product for our environment. Naturally bio-degradable, our teas are delicious to enjoy – and perfect for compost.

Other Areas Of Focus
Compared to bagged tea, loose leaf tea uses significantly less packaging. Bagged tea requires as many bags as there are "servings" for its package. While we do sell tea bags for your loose leaf tea, we highly recommend our infusers. Some people also enjoy brewing their loose leaf tea in a french press.
We've recently switched to recycled and more sustainable packaging materials. All of our plastics and cardboard can be recycled according to your local recycling center requirements!
Many loose leaf tea sellers use biodegradable tea bags for their teas, and we're no exception (one of the many reasons we love the loose leaf tea community)! Our teabags aren't just biodegradable; they're also free of plastic! If you don't have an infuser or prefer to use tea bags, have peace of mind knowing they're good for the environment!
