Ample packaging is needed for safe-keeping of quality. On the other hand, we think we should be environmental conscious to be humble and restrained in the use of materials.
The design of our packaging methods and materials aims at effective protection from the elements so as to deliver to you the best quality of the tea selection and at the same time minimal waste of the Earth's resources. Quality of the packing materials themselves are therefore critical.
These materials are not only thicker and stronger, but also pass strict food packaging standards.
Our standard brown paper true aluminum bag for packaging the tea — the kraft-alu pack — is made from wood pulp produced to the standard of FSC, or Forest Stewardship Council, to ensure both quality and environmental responsibility. The true aluminum foil lining and the bag production complies with ISO 9001, ISO 22000 and HACCP. In another word, our tea is packed in the most reliable food industry standard.
There are two sizes: the classic and the tall. The classic holds 30g for fluffy leaves such as White Peony Classic Floral, 40g for traditioal oolongs such as Orchid Literati, upto 110g for denser grains such as Lapsang Souchong Pristine or 150g for really dense beads such as Cream of Puer.
Some tea selections need to be delivered in smaller quantity. The Premium Alu Zippable does the job. Produced also under stringent food packaging standards and with a resealable zip for added convenience if you ever want to take some tea around. These 10 x 15 cm little pouches are thick: 10 microns per side, of true aluminum and food grade PE for optimum content protection and re-uasability.
As for the tea accessories, our kraft cubes hold them inside cushioned with shredded paper*. Shredded paper is one of most effective protective packing materials, comparable to molded pulp. It is superior than the latter for minimizing recycling carbon footprint and therefore a lot more environmental friendly. Furthermore, it is much more cost efficient! Lowering of unnecessary cost is one reason why we can offer our products at such reasonable prices.
Some of of tea accessaries come in the manufacturer's set box.
*Reuse is the better alternative to recycle in environmental conservation. Click <here> to read more about it from an organization who is more an expert in this. We have limited our shredded paper supply to purely office documents and direct marketing mail for hygene.
