A reusable cotton tea bag for loose leaf tea. Sized to perfectly fit a mug or mason jar, and the handle allows for easy removal after steeping.
Almost all tea bags have plastic in them, and steeping them in hot water can cause toxic chemicals to leach into your otherwise healthy cup of tea. These cotton filters impart no taste, and they're nontoxic.
Comes with 2 filters.
Packaging: recyclable/compostable brown kraft paper box.
Care and Use: To clean, compost the tea leaves and thoroughly rinse filter. Hang to dry. Periodically, once every 4-6 weeks, boil the filters in fresh water to remove any accumulated oils. If you'd like, you can add a scoop of baking soda to the regular cleaning process to enhance your filter.
Footprint: The filters are made in Austin, TX. All filters are sewn and packaged by happy human beings making a fair and living wage. Their cotton is all GOTS certified organic (GOTS also monitors labor practices and working conditions), and currently grown in Texas, India, and Pakistan.
End of Life: If at some point you wish to dispose of a filter, they can be cut into strips and composted, since they are organic cotton. (Just cut out the metal loop!)
We are often gifted loose leaf teas, so we have quite the collection. Usually my husband and I will brew the tea in our french press, but sometimes we'll be in the mood for different teas. This has been a great solution for those times when we want our own individual servings.
