Compost

Instructions

Only paper-based tea bags can be composted. Not the plastic ones, which are silky.

Alternatives

Buy tea from the bulk section and use a reusable tea infuser.

Facts

Most paper tea bags have some small portion of plastic as their mesh material but are still worthy of composting.
