Are the bags really garden compostable?

FAQ-Beitrag

Yes! This has even been confirmed by the TÜV. The bags decompose in a natural environment within 180 days. And completely without pollutants. Super, isn’t it?

I do not have a thermometer. How do I know when the infusion temperature has been reached?2022-04-26T13:04:45+02:00

We do recommend that you use a kettle with a thermostat or a tea water thermometer – but this is not a mandatory requirement. You can also use two rules of thumb to guide you:

First method: Wait and see

To do this, boil 1L of water in the kettle and wait for the times indicated below with the lid closed:

80° for oolongs & white teas – approx. 20 minutes

70° for green teas – about 25 minutes

Second method: recasting

Each time you transfer the water to another vessel, the water loses about 10 degrees in temperature.

80° for oolongs & white teas – 2 times repouring

70° for green teas – 3-4 times repouring

What are the cans made of?2023-05-07T00:15:33+02:00

The cans are made exclusively of tinplate and grass paper labels. Compared to normal paper made from virgin fibers, grass paper saves 99% water and 95% CO₂ in production.

What makes the cans so sustainable?2022-04-26T13:07:37+02:00

The cans are made of 100% paper and do not contain any plastic. Thus, they are easily recyclable. The core of the sleeve is made of 100% recycled paper. This again significantly reduces the ecological footprint.

Where does the tea come from?2021-12-26T01:12:57+01:00

The components of the blends as well as the teas themselves come from different countries. Regular on-site visits of our pre-supplier as well as the long-standing cooperation with plantations allow highest quality standards and ensure highest quality as well as environmentally and socially compatible cultivation. Of course, quality is also regularly checked in laboratory tests and by on-site audits. After all, trust is good, but control is better!

Can I also pick up the order?2022-04-26T13:05:56+02:00

Sorry, this is not possible at the moment!

Is sustainable packaging more expensive?2023-05-07T00:17:52+02:00

Yes, unfortunately that is the case. To put a concrete figure on it, our sustainable, compostable and plastic-free bags cost about ten times as much to purchase as the plastic bag most competitors use. The same applies, of course, to the other packaging material: from cartons, filling material to banderoles and labels.

Our vision is to package tea sustainably for all – only together can we make a difference. This is not achieved with eco-surcharges to optimize profit margins. Therefore, we try to absorb these high costs as much as possible or compensate them in other places (for example, the low-cost shipping via Deutsche Post).

Do you also have organic teas?2022-04-26T13:06:19+02:00

Currently, we are not allowed to offer organic goods due to a lack of organic certification. Many of our items are organic and we are aiming for organic certification in the future to be able to advertise them as such.

What are TT Points?2023-07-14T12:36:33+02:00

True Tea Points (or TT Points) are bonus points that you can earn when you shop. You can then redeem them later in your account for discounts.

For every 1 € of purchase value you collect 2 TT Points.

 

What is the minimum order value?2022-08-02T11:25:34+02:00

With us you can order from 9,90€ – from 34,90€ the shipping is even free. Below that we charge 4,99€ shipping costs.
