How Do I Use Tea Bags?

When you brew your tea using our empty tea bags you get all the fantastic flavour of a loose leaf tea without worrying about specialist equipment or messy tea leaves.

Simply top up your tea bag with your favourite blend of our tea, close the drawstring and steep for as long as needed. Then, give a gentle squeeze with a teaspoon before removing the bag from the hot water.

What Are The Advantages Of Using Tea Bags?

When purchasing our empty tea bags, you allow yourself to enjoy benefits such as easy cleanup, no need for any specialist equipment, and you find yourself with a handy portable serving of your favourite blend no matter where your day takes you.
