Sustainabili-Tea

When it comes to tea, don’t let those cardboard boxes and and single-use disposable bags cramp your style – you don’t need ’em! Here’s how to cut them out of the picture (and the trash can):

  • Buy tea in bulk (in.gredients-style) and store it in a reusable container – a mason jar works great; so do tins and other jars.
  • Use muslin tea bags – these are washable and reusable! Plus you have control over how much tea you want to steep, and can add other ingredients if you like.
  • Go bag-free by using a tea pot with a built in tea infuser (like the one pictured above), or use a french press.

When finished, spent tea makes great compost!

We’ll announce our starting line-up of in-store teas closer to opening day.
