Tea Filters

Tea Filters

Your Tea, Your Strength, Your Way is building an ethical connection across how we drink our tea. 

All our empty self fill teabags are plastic free (even the heat seal ones which now have an all natural glue). They are all 100% biodegradable and home compostable. The sides of our tea bags are sealed using compression and ultrasound.

Choice of Materials

Unbleached paper removes the bleaching process from the manufacture of white tea bags - meaning no harmful dioxins go into the planet or water table.

Our unbleached corn fibre is exclusive to and is our most environmentally friendly tea filter bag. We manufacture from non genetically modified materials, and we whiten our tea bags using a revolutionary oxygen wash method, where we push oxygen molecules through the fibres to whiten them.

If you prefer white paper teabags, then we also have fully home compostable, biodegradable tea filters to suit.

Size of Tea Bag

We have made a variety of sizes to suit different types of tea.

Small size 6x8cm are best for small cups of black teas;

Medium size - 7x9cm is ideal for mugs and pots of black tea, or cups of fruit, green, white or herbal teas;

Extra Large for Fine Tea Infusion - 9x13cm - Another exclusive product - a very large tea bag for the finest tea. This bag allows a high quality tea to infuse properly. 

Choice of Seal

Our tea filter bags have a choice of seal to allow you the greatest flexibility.

Drawstring - a completely natural, home compostable cotton strinbg threaded through the tea bag. To use, simply fill the bag with your tea and pull the drawstring tight to seal.

Heat Seal - we DO NOT use microplastics in our heat seal, but now use a fully natural plant extract. To use, simply fill the tea bag with your tea and then use an industry standard heat sealing machine to seal the bag closed (we use a Packer machine).

Foldover - available using our own corn fibre material, this is a convenient method for filling a teabag and making it look neat. Simply fill the tea bag with tea and fold over a flap to close the bag without using a heat sealing machine or having a drawstring. This is ideal for customers who wish to mail filled tea bags.
