About the tea paper:
Our tea bag paper is the same tea bag paper that is used by the largest tea companies in the United States. In fact there are really only two major suppliers of tea bag paper in the world.
The tea bag paper is made of a special blend of thermoplastic fibers, abaca, and cellulosic fibers. This tissue has a high wet strength with neutral odor and flavor characteristics making it a highly acceptable media for bagging tea. The tea bag paper is compost-able but not biodegradable.
Abaca, another member of the "hard" fibre group is the Spanish name for what is more widely called Manila hemp, and is indigenous to the Philippines. It is a member of the banana family of plants with the botanical name of MUSA TEXTILES.
When mature the abaca plant consists of about 12 to 30 stalks radiating from a central root system. Each of these stalks is about 12 to 20 feet high and the fibre is stripped from the stem rather than the leaf, with each stalk being cut into sheaths and then strips or "tuxies".
The strips are then scraped (i.e. either hand or machine "decorticated") to remove the pulp, then sometimes washed and dried. The outer leaves of the plant are wider and contain more but coarser fibre than the inner leaves.
Because of its relatively long staple length,strength and cellulose content, it is particularly used in the manufacture of a range of specialised papers including tea and coffee bags, sausage casing paper, electrolytric papers, currency notes,cigarette filter papers, medical/ disposal papers and some high-quality writing paper.
