In the spirit of simplicity and for the sake of the environment, The Republic of Tea’s signature round tea bags have always been made from unbleached tea paper, free of excess wrapping, strings, tags and staples. The unbleached tea paper is free of chemicals and no chlorine-containing compounds are used in the paper. Our tea bags are free of glue and are gluten-free. They are also kosher certified.
In addition to our eco-friendly tea bags, The Republic of Tea is proud to offer our Embassies Eco Friendly Full-Leaf Round Tea Bags for table service. The open-weave design allows optimum full-leaf infusion and full-leaf flavor. Each bag is made of renewable resources, including all-natural bamboo sewn with all-natural bamboo string. The tag, complete with brewing instructions printed with soy ink, is also fashioned from all-natural bamboo and recycled paper. The mesh tea bag fabric of the Eco-Friendly Full-Leaf Round Tea Bags is a byproduct of corn and sewn with bamboo string. Both are an all-natural, renewable resource.
Underscoring our commitment to the environment, all of our tea bags are biodegradable and compostable.
