Did you already know that as much as 25% of your commonplace teabag is plastic and that billions of microplastics shed from the bag into every cup of tea you drink?
Here are three simple fixes to this downside …
- Swap to free leaf, use a tea ball, teapot or plunger.
- Buy free tea in bulk from a zero-waste retailer.
- Or, higher nonetheless, why not swap to homegrown teas. They are easy to develop – even in pots on a balcony or windowsill and also you don’t want a lot house.
Some of my favourites that I develop simply close to my kitchen are lemon balm, lemon myrtle, a vary of mints, pineapple sage and tulsi. To make the tea, you simply seize a handful of leaves, pop them into a teapot or plunger, let it steep for a jiffy, after which drink. I additionally love including recent turmeric, and ginger too for those who’d like so as to add an additional zing of flavour.
When you develop your individual tea leaves, it means you’ll be able to mess around with the flavours a bit, mix different types of teas and provide you with new combos.
