For any tea drinkers out there, the habit can create a lot of trash. There’s the box that the tea comes in, the tea bag itself, and the wrapper that the tea bag is packaged in. All for one cup of tea.
The low-waste alternative is to swap your tea bags for a tea infuser and loose leaf tea. It’s quite simple, just measure out your desired amount of loose leaf tea and place it in the tea ball. Steep the tea in hot water and you will have yourself a cup of tea in minutes. Many avid tea drinkers even claim that loose leaf tea in a tea ball tastes better than tea from tea bags.
This tea ball by Schefs is made from stainless steel and is completely plastic free. It is easy to clean and very durable.
