Tea is now plastic free

CLIPPER Teas has developed what it claims is the first plastic-free, non-GM and unbleached heat-sealed tea bag.

Emma Vass, chief executive at parent company Wessanen UK, said: “Having worked tirelessly to find a completely natural, non-GM solution, it is fantastic to see the new tea bags now in full production.”

The tea bags are made using a natural plant-based material, a blend of abaca and plant fibres.
