9 Amazing Ways to use Eco-friendly, Reusable Tea Bags
South Africans are known for loving tea just as much as our English predecessors. The only problem is, if you don’t have a compost heap in your back garden and you’re not being picky about the materials your favorite tea brand uses, you’re adding to the waste problem we face globally.
So what do us tea-lovers do? We find an eco-friendly alternative! The most important thing to look out for when purchasing reusable tea bags is to make sure that they are unbleached, made of a high quality material and are big enough to use in other ways, for example:
- Tea (scented or non)
- Ground coffee
- Herb storage
- Foot bath (filled with your favorite salts, herbs and essential oils)
- Bath bomb (filled with your favorite salts, herbs and essential oils)
- Soups (filled with stock, bones and spices)
- Bamboo charcoal bag etc.
- Scented bags for your cupboards or car
- The perfect gift idea for tea and coffee lovers
We’ve found the perfect reusable, 100% natural, non-toxic and unbleached tea bags which are designed as purely as possible so that the taste of tea or coffee is not affected by the bags. Also, thel paper is thin enough to allow leaves or grounds to seep through easily, which steeps a flavorful and enjoyable brew! Easy to fill, these reusable tea bags have a convenient drawstring to prevent any loose leaf from escaping ensuring no fuss and no mess.
They’re made of the highest quality filter paper that ensures strong penetration and high temperature resistance which lets the herbs or grounds develop in strength. This high quality material also ensures that no harmful chemicals or toxins are released when soaked in boiling water or very high temperatures. The bags can also be refrigerated between uses to ensure no bacteria develop.
It’s a win-win situation; reduce your plastic footprint and enjoy your favorite beverage over and over and over again!
