Co-Packing: Tea Bag Styles

@ Monterey Bay Spice Co.

pillow style tea bags

Pillow style tea bags are approximately 2.5 x 2.5 in in size and do not include a string or a tag. Minimum tea bag run for pillow style tea bags is 300 lbs of tea. This will make approximately 66,000 (2 g) tea bags.

Please note that the minimum is for one flavor of tea only. We are unable to combine several different tea flavors to meet the minimum of 300 lbs.

The charge for making the tea bags is $17.00 per 1,000 tea bags.

tea bags with string and tag

The finished size of our tea bags with a string and tag are slightly smaller in size as compared to our pillow style tea bags. Our default tea tag is blank white. (If you are interested in colored tags or tea tags with printed logos please refer to our "packaging" heading at left for more information.) We do NOT use staples to attach the string to the bag.

The minimum size run for producing tea bags with string and tag is 300 pounds of tea or around 66,000 tea bags.

The charge for producing these tea bags is $19.00 per 1,000 tea bags.

tea bags with overwrap

Individual overwrap tea bags are more expensive to produce than the simple pillow style tea bag, however the individual overwrap can help lengthen the shelf life of your tea and add a professional element to your line.

The finished size of the overwrap tea bag we offer is 70 x 80mm. These tea bags include both a string and tag. No staples are used.

The minimum run size for individual overwrap tea bags is 300 lbs of tea. This will make approximately 66,000 (2 g) tea bags.

The charge to produce this style of tea bags is $38.00 per 1,000 tea bags, not including the cost of the overwrap material (also called film). The clear overwrap material we have in house is $40 per 1,000 tea bags.

If a custom overwrap is desired it will be the customer's responsibility to provide Monterey Bay Spice Co. with the final printed overwrap/film. To learn more about acquiring custom overwrap (resources, potential pricing, etc) please refer to our "packaging" heading at left for more information.

large tea bags

We also manufacture large style tea bags which great for teapot use or for steeping larger botanicals.

The finished size of our large tea bags is approximately 4 x 5 in. They can hold 1-3 oz of tea—sometimes more depending on the density of the tea (or botanical) being used. These tea bags can be filled with herbs as well as teas. Some of the items we have packed into these tea bags in the past include black teas, green teas, lavender buds, chamomile flowers, various bath herbs, mulling spices, and bath salts.

Our minimum run size for these tea bags is 4,000. The charge is $0.16 each. Volume discounts apply at runs above 50,000.

empty tea bags - DIY

Empty tea bags are great for the “do it yourselfer”. These are offered on our website in two sizes, including a small size (2.5 x 2.5 in) or a large size (4 x 5 in). They are sold in either packs of 50 or 5,000.

If one of these sizes does not suit your needs we can run a custom size. The minimum run size for a custom order is 100,000 tea bags.

The price will depend on the actual size and quantity.
