This delicate, steamed green tea is from the Nilgiri District of Southern India. It has a smooth, mild taste and attractive softness that sets it apart from the more commonly-seen roasted green teas.
Why we love it
Certified organic and totally biodegradable - two huge environmental benefits
Provides employment opportunities for refugees in the UK
Produced by a small fair trade Social Enterprise in north London
Brew for 3-4 minutes in 90° water according to your preferred strength.
NEMI ensures that its teas are made in a way that is better for people, animals and wildlife, and respects the natural environment. It believes that everyone in the UK, regardless of whether they are refugees or economic migrants, should get the same chance as all citizens for a decent quality of life and the opportunity to contribute to society and its development.
Often the people who grow and pick tea don’t earn enough to feed their families, let alone plan for the future. As a fair trade organisation, NEMI buys its tea on fair terms. Its farmers and workers benefit from improved working conditions, training in how to improve the way they farm and manage their environment, and the opportunity to improve healthcare and education in their communities.
All the pyramid tea bags are made from a fully biodegradable Polylactic Acid (PLA) mesh filter derived from 100% non-GMO sugarcane. The bags are joined at the seams ultrasonically, without the use of heat. Even the string and labels are both attached using ultrasound so no glue is needed.
Packed in a material called NatureFlex™, a cellulose based film from renewable wood pulp proven to be suitable for home composting. It is also marine degradable. Comes beautifully presented in a recyclable card tube that also makes a great pen pot!
Tube measures approximately 15cm high x 7.5cm diameter. Contains 15 pyramid tea bags.
Ingredients: Organic Nilgiri Green Tea.
