100% Compostable, No Plastic

Jun 5, 2023
We're dedicated to promoting sustainability and reducing our environmental footprint in every way possible. That's why we're thrilled to offer tea bags that are not only made from renewable, plant-based materials but are also 100% biodegradable and compostable - with no plastic whatsoever!

Our tea bags are crafted using PLA, a plant-based material derived from resources such as corn starch or sugarcane. This ensures that when you brew your favorite cup of tea, you can do so with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you're not harming the environment.

Moreover, all of our individual tea bag envelopes, strings, tags, and pyramid tea bags are 100% compostable. Our compostable envelopes have been recognized with a silver award by the USA Flexible Packaging Association for their environmentally friendly design and advanced production methods. The compostable inks used in printing on our envelopes also ensure that they can be fully broken down, leaving no harmful trace behind.

Our compostable tea bag components provide excellent air and flavor barrier properties, help prevent UV light from damaging the tea leaves, and hold nitrogen gas during packaging for added freshness and longevity. By choosing Metropolitan Tea Group's eco-friendly tea bags, you're taking a small step towards creating a healthier planet for future generations. So whether you're an avid tea drinker or simply looking for ways to live more sustainably, choose our compostable tea bags - each component is thoughtfully designed to reduce your impact on the environment."
