Most traditional tea brands use polypropylene, a sealing plastic, to keep the tea bags from falling apart. So, even when you put all your used tea bags in the food waste or compost heap, it can lead to plastic pollution, as not all of it will be broken down.
Set of ONE Muslin Cotton Tea Bag With Draw String handmade in small quantities, with lots of love in Boston, MA.
2 sizes available:
- - 5"x3" (big mug/small tea pot)
- - 6"x4" (large tea pot)
To clean your tea bag, tip it upside down into the compost or garbage. Give the bag a good rinse, and allow to air dry. If you have used milk when brewing your tea - you will want to wash your tea bag with each use. If you are brewing with just water, you can use the bag two or three times before washing.
*To wash your reusable muslin tea bag simply add it to your regular kitchen laundry.
