The Tea Centre’s eco-friendly and fuss-free wholesale tea bag collection

Say hello to our zero waste, compostable, and reusable wholesale tea bag collection! The intention with our wholesale teabag range is that you purchase tea bags in a wholesale tea tin once, and top up when required with the tea bag refill cartons! If you’re unsure of what tea bag tins to start your wholesale journey with, look no further than our Classic Café and Artisan Crafted teabag packs.

The history of tea bags

Did you know that the invention of the teabag was a complete accident? The history of 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 teabag 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 sacrificed 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 tea bags special?

Unlike other commercial tea bags currently on the market, The Tea Centre’s tea bags (including the inner packaging) are made of compostable material and do not contain harmful glues or chemicals.

  • The pyramid tea bag material: composed of 100% natural sugarcane. This compostable plant-based material also makes our mesh bags fully biodegradable and GMO-free. This is unlike cornstarch tea bags that, while compostable, may contain GMO elements.
  • The NatureFlex inner packaging: protecting our teabags within its cardboard carton exterior is NatureFlex compostable packaging. A Japanese innovation, NatureFlex is a sustainable, GMO-free, cellulose film made from wood pulp. The pulp is derived from responsibly-managed forest. You can find out more about this wonderful packaging here.
  • The 100% recyclable outer packaging: stylish and sustainable at the same time! Our consciously-crafted exterior packaging is made of cardboard that is 100% recyclable (including the gold foiling and design details).
  • 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 a freshly steeped herbal tea bag. 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
  • Brewing a black tea or black tea fusion? Steep for 3–5 minutes in boiling water
  • Brewing a green tea or green tea fusion? Steep for 2-4 minutes in 80°C water
  • Brewing a herbal tisane? Steep for 3–7 minutes in boiling water
  • Enjoy!
