What’s In Your Cup of Tea?

Put down that cup of tea and listen closely. The “dirty truth” is worse than you think; if you are a frequent tea drinker, then you might just be drinking plastic. Yes, you read that right. Many popular tea manufacturers use plastics like nylon and polyethylene terephthalate to seal their teabags and ensure they don’t fall apart when soaked in hot water, but this comes at a cost. When steeped in hot water, these plastic teabags release up to 11.6 billion microplastics and
some are tiny enough to enter human cells when consumed.

As a matter of fact, there is a significant amount of plastic contamination in a lot of the foods and drinks we consume on a regular basis. Recent studies have concluded the average person consumes five grams of plastic on a weekly basis, to put these numbers into perspective, you’re consuming the same amount of microplastics found in a credit card! There isn’t enough scientific evidence to discern just how harmful the consumption of microplastics can be to
humans, but it is always better to be safe than sorry. While it may be impossible to entirely cut out plastic from your diet, you can always work towards minimizing those numbers.

So, it may be time to find a new brand of tea, and luckily for you, we’ve got you covered. Here at All Things Elderberry, we are dedicated to clean and healthy drinking, at no cost to your health or the environment. Our teabags are 100% compostable, plant-based, and non-toxic. Our teabags are made from Soilon, which is an entirely biodegradable and environment-friendly woven mesh derived from corn starch. No plastic particles in this cup of tea!

All Things Elderberry offers two tasty flavors of certified organic tea. If you like a relaxing floral taste with a spicy kick, then you’ll be sure to enjoy our chai tea; with a blend of rooibos, cinnamon, ginger, fennel, and elderflower to help calm your mind and ease digestion. If you prefer something a little milder and fruity, our green tea is the way to go. This zesty mixture consists of orange peel, hibiscus, and (of course) elderberries, for all the necessary nutrients your other tea brands might not be giving you. For the benefit of yourself and the Earth, give our tea a try!
