Why do you use packaging for your teas?

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; 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. 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 a sachet. The individually wrapped sachets protect the tea bags from light which can cause the oils to evaporate, helping to protect their depth of flavour and herbal health benefits.
