Why do you use packaging for your teas?

We want to keep our blended herbal tea bags preserved as much as possible to lock in the freshness and retain the high essential oil content which gives them such a unique and strong taste, which means using an envelope. The individually wrapped envelopes protect the tea bags from light which can cause the oils to evaporate, helping to protect their depth of flavour and herbal health benefits. At Pukka we are dedicated to sustainable living and endeavour to make all our packaging environmentally friendly and to the highest industry standard. For our tea, we use an organic cotton string without a staple, to ensure you can safely recycle the tea bag in your food recycling bins/caddies; we manufacture the teabags in the UK to support other businesses here to grow as we do, and our cartons are printed with vegetable inks.
