Why We Will Never Sell Tea Bags: Mayde Tea's Commitment to Sustainability and Your Health
At Mayde Tea, we are not just in the business of selling tea; we are in the business of promoting mindful consumption and a sustainable way of life. Our commitment to the environment and your well-being drives every decision we make. That's why we've made a conscious choice never to sell tea bags. Discover why we stand by loose-leaf tea and how it aligns with our values of quality, sustainability, authenticity, and your health.
A Focus on Quality, Purpose, and Health
We believe that products should serve multiple purposes. Our teas are not just about taste; they should make you feel good and add aesthetic value to your surroundings. Tea, dating back to 2737 BC, was originally used as a medicinal drink. We want to honour this tradition by offering teas that are pure and free from artificial colours and flavours. We believe that the true purpose of tea is to heal the body, and we stay true to that purpose.
The Environmental and Health Impact of Tea Bags
One of the primary reasons we will never use tea bags is their environmental impact. Most tea bags contain plastics, either in the bag material itself or as part of the adhesive used to seal them. This plastic content makes them unsuitable for composting, leading to long-lasting pollution in our landfills.
Additionally, tea bags often contain pesticides and microplastics, which are Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) that interfere with the normal functioning of the endocrine system. The endocrine system is responsible for producing, storing, and releasing hormones in the body. Consuming tea brewed from bags that contain EDCs exposes you to these harmful chemicals, which can have adverse effects on your health.
Our Solution: Stainless Steel Infuser
To provide a sustainable and health-conscious alternative to tea bags, we have developed the perfect solution – the Stainless Steel Infuser. This infuser allows you to brew our organic loose-leaf tea blends with ease. It not only preserves the purity and taste of our teas but also eliminates the need for disposable tea bags, reducing your exposure to toxins.
Embracing Sustainability and Health
Our commitment to sustainability and your health goes hand in hand. We strive to create products that are recyclable, refillable, compostable, and reusable. By choosing loose-leaf tea and using our Stainless Steel Infuser, you contribute to a greener planet and a healthier lifestyle. You can enjoy tea without worrying about the harmful effects of pesticides and plastic.
By choosing loose-leaf tea and our Stainless Steel Infuser, you help us make a positive impact on the planet and safeguard your health—one mindful cup at a time.
