The tea paper is made from a special blend of thermoplastic fibers, cellulosic fibers, and abaca also known as Manila hemp. Tea bags are compostable, but not biodegradable. They are not bleached by chemicals.
Using a spoon or scoop, fill the tea bags with the teas or herbs of your choice. Do not overfill. Tea bags need to be sealed with heat and pressure. Making certain that no herbs or teas are between the heat-sensitive seams, simply press with an appropriate heating device such as a curling iron, heat sealer, or clothing iron set to cotton. Firmly press to seal. Your custom tea is now ready for brewing.
