The Consciously Crafted Range | Tea Bags Refill Cartons

Our bestselling teas are now available as tea bags that we package in refill cartons! Our silky pyramid bags are made with sugarcane. Such natural material also makes our mesh bags fully biodegradable and GMO-free!

We then use a NatureFlex bag that protects and encases the tea bags. NatureFlex is a cellulose film made from natural wood pulp. In turn, the tea bags and NatureFlex lining is then presented in a 100% recyclable, food-grade, cardboard carton.

All of this ensures that our tea pouches carry maximum flavour with minimal impact on the environment.

The Tea Centre’s convenient and eco-friendly tea bags

Say goodbye to dusty pouches filled with leftover fannings. The Tea Centre’s premium range of tea bags are fully biodegradable, GMO-free, and are filled with only our finest large leaves. This means our tea bags offer the convenience you know and love without sacrificing on wellbeing (for both you and the environment) or flavour!

We offer our full range of bestseller teas in our eco-friendly tea bags, which are then perfectly encased in a protective NatureFlex lining bag. NatureFlex is a fantastic plastic substitute and Japanese innovation derived from natural wood pulp. All presented in a 100% recyclable cardboard carton. This carton is food-grade safe and is the perfect option for those refilling a tea bag tin! Our consciously crafted packaging as a whole also guarantees long-lasting freshness. Our tea bags are also the perfect addition to any gift and are a staple in any tea lover’s pantry.


The history of tea bags

Did you know that the invention of the tea bag was a complete accident? The history of the tea bags goes back to 1908 when a New York tea trader named Thomas Sullivan hoped to minimise shipping costs by packaging loose leaf tea being transported to prospective clients in small silk pouches instead of crates (which was the norm at the time). One of Mr Sullivan’s clients incidentally dropped his pouch in a cup of hot water when attempting to spoon out the loose leaves...and the tea bag was born!

The tea bag then went through a number of manufacturing upgrades—or downgrades, according to some tea purists—where silk pouches were switched out for gauze and later paper (which allowed for optimal brewing but were less eco-friendly) and the loose leaf filling was switched out for the dusting and tea fannings (which are more cost-efficient but sacrifice on flavour). The Tea Centre has learnt from the history of the tea bag by offering a range that does not compromise the environment or flavour, but is still easy to use and comes at an affordable price.  

What benefits make The Tea Centre’s consciously crafted range special?

Unlike other commercial tea bags currently on the market, The Tea Centre’s tea bags are made of compostable material and do not contain harmful glues or chemicals. Our tea bags are made from 100% sugarcane, which means they are not only biodegradable but GMO-free! This is unlike cornstarch tea bags that, while compostable, may contain GMO elements.

Furthermore, Our consciously crafted range's inner NatureFlex packaging is biodegradable and our tea bags are presented in a gorgeous AND recyclable carton. This will make our tea—at every level—something you can feel good about. You can read more about our consciously crafted refill tea bag cartons here.

Consider making a cup of tea using one of our tea bags the next time you want to relax and unwind during some well-deserved “me” time. Enjoy the soothing aromas and elegant flavours of freshly steeped tea bags. You could even bring a tin of our tea bags to work; that way, you can enjoy the finest teas any time during the day.


How to brew tea using a tea bag

  • Use one tea bag for every 200ml or 250ml of water
  • If your tea bag is filled with green tea, steep for 2–4 minutes in 80°C water
  • If your tea bag is filled with black tea or flavoured black tea, steep for 3–5 minutes in boiling water
  • If your tea bag is filled with a herbal tisane, steep for 3–7 minutes in water that’s just under boiling (95°C)
  • Enjoy!
