About the tea paper:

Our tea bag paper is the same tea bag paper that is used by the largest tea companies in the United States. In fact there are really only two major suppliers of tea bag paper in the world.

The tea bag paper is made of a special blend of thermoplastic fibers, abaca, and cellulosic fibers. This tissue has a high wet strength with neutral odor and flavor characteristics making it a highly acceptable media for bagging tea. The tea bag paper is compost-able but not biodegradable.


About Abaca:

Abaca, another member of the "hard" fibre group is the Spanish name for what is more widely called Manila hemp, and is indigenous to the Philippines. It is a member of the banana family of plants with the botanical name of MUSA TEXTILES.

When mature the abaca plant consists of about 12 to 30 stalks radiating from a central root system. Each of these stalks is about 12 to 20 feet high and the fibre is stripped from the stem rather than the leaf, with each stalk being cut into sheaths and then strips or "tuxies".

The strips are then scraped (i.e. either hand or machine "decorticated") to remove the pulp, then sometimes washed and dried. The outer leaves of the plant are wider and contain more but coarser fibre than the inner leaves.

Because of its relatively long staple length,strength and cellulose content, it is particularly used in the manufacture of a range of specialised papers including tea and coffee bags, sausage casing paper, electrolytric papers, currency notes,cigarette filter papers, medical/ disposal papers and some high-quality writing paper.

Press ‘N Brew empty Tea Bags are an indispensible item for packaging your custom tea blends. Available in a 50-pack of small 2.5-inch x 2.75-inch tea bags. A very fun and economical way to share any herbal formulas you create.

To begin packaging your teas and herbs, remove the empty tea bags from the 50-pack. Our tea filter paper is the same tea paper that is used by the largest tea companies in the United States. In fact, there are only two major suppliers of tea filter paper in the world.

The tea paper is made from a special blend of thermoplastic fibers, cellulosic fibers, and abaca also known as Manila hemp. Tea bags are compostable, but not biodegradable. They are not bleached by chemicals.

Using a spoon or scoop, fill the tea bags with the teas or herbs of your choice. Do not overfill. Tea bags need to be sealed with heat and pressure. Making certain that no herbs or teas are between the heat-sensitive seams, simply press with an appropriate heating device such as a curling iron, heat sealer, or clothing iron set to cotton. Firmly press to seal. Your custom tea is now ready for brewing.

Press ‘N’brew Bags are also available in larger sizes, including 5 inches x 3.75 inches. Perfect for herbal packs, such as lavender.

To get started packaging your unique tea blends and herbal packs, order your Press ‘N’brew Bags today. Be sure to check out the hundreds of other herbs, spices, teas and herbal supplies available from the Monterey Bay Spice Company’s online store at herbco.com.
