Creating the Universal Language for Aroma

Why is it so difficult to articulate what we are smelling?

The Art: Right Brain

“Aroma is a powerful trigger of memory; a brief whiff can create vivid, potent images in our mind, associated with a confluence of recollections.” - Lana Sutherland | CEO, TEALEAVES

Exploring the relationship between aroma and mood, each blend is crafted in homage to a unique scent memory. The mood of Imperial Earl Grey is Enchanted.

The Science: Left Brain

Utilizing headspace gas chromatography to index scent molecules in our blends, and applying Microsoft's Principles of Inclusive Design to create codified data visualization, we created the first iteration of the Language of Aroma.

Discover our right and left-brained approach to articulate this ever elusive sense: LanguageOfAroma.com

Our Classic teabags use a renewable and sustainable material called Polyactic Acid (PLA), made from corn starch. 

With 11 varietals to choose from, we hope you find peace in a teacup.

SIP SUSTAINABLY

Better Than Biodegradable

IT'S NOT PLASTIC.
Each teabag is home compostable, leaving no trace behind. The envelopes are made from NatureFlex, a material comprised of renewable woodpulp which breaks down in the compost along with the sachet.

WHY IS IT SPECIAL?

The entire product is home compostable! This means that it can fully break down within a short period of time without the support of a commercial facility, providing a truly sustainable life cycle.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH BIODEGRADABLE?

Other options on the market, such as 'biodegradable' or 'industrial compostable' packaging, are not as sustainable because they require a commercial facility to be composted. These facilities are often inaccessible and therefore the products typically end up in landfills. These options do not provide a zero-waste experience where the entire product can be disposed of in your home compost bin.

Please note, our 100 count Classic Teabag boxes have not yet transitioned to home compostable envelopes, but will as soon as we move through existing inventory.

Dispose of teabag sachet and envelope in your home compost.

HOW TO DISPOSE OF IT?

We wanted to make being environmentally friendly as easy as possible for you! You can discard this product in your backyard compost or in your food bin collected by your municipality. You can rest easy knowing your teabags won't end up in the landfill.

Total Perfection

I drink 3-4 cups of tea a day, all black until my tumeric chai in the evening. I try to mix up the different types of english breakfast and earl grey that I drink to keep it interesting. But hands down, this is always my very favorite. From the very first sip, I often think, why do I even bother drinking anything else!?!? It is just perfection.

Still my favorite Earl Grey

I tried the smaller bags this go around. Still delicious, but I like the stronger steep from the larger bags. Going to try the loose version next time.

Great flavor

I’ve tried many different teas. This is by far my favorite tea. I’ll be ordering more for myself and for gifts for the holidays.

Leave No Trace.

Each TEALEAVES Classic tea bag is plastic free and home compostable, leaving no trace.

What are the tea bags made of? How are the tea bags made? The home compostable sachet (tea bag) is built with 100% plant-based material, Polylactic Acid (PLA), derived from corn. It allows for optimal infusion and flavor and can be discarded with your food waste or put into your home compost. Consciously crafted inside and out, the outer overwrap is there to keep all of the natural flavors of the tea inside the sachet until you are ready to brew it. But don't worry, the outer envelope is also fully home compostable! We chose NatureFlex, a backyard compostable renewable material, made from renewable woodpulp.

Compared to an estimated 100 - 500 years for petroleum-based plastics, these envelopes will take only a few months to break down in your home compost! For moments when you need the convenience of a full-flavored teabag that's better than biodegradable tea bags, you'll no longer need to ponder the question, "Are tea bags compostable?". We've got you covered, by design.
