Aroma protection foil
We pack our tea bags in aroma-protection envelopes to avoid flavours evaporating during storage. However, we are currently in the process of changing the material of the envelopes. The different materials of the new and old envelopes mean that they must be disposed of differently.
Our new aroma protection envelopes are coated paper printed with compostable colours. This has two advantages: aromas and flavours are more effectively protected, and the material is recyclable. If adequately disposed of, the envelopes can be reused in new recycled paper or cardboard. The disposal routes can differ significantly from country to country due to different procedures and recycling processes. Please ask your disposal company about the correct recycling of the tea envelopes.
Our previous tea envelopes had to be disposed of in the residual waste and, therefore, could not be recycled.
The change from old to new envelopes is ongoing. You can recognise the new envelopes by the QR code printed on them, where you can learn more about the packaging. When you dispose of the envelopes correctly, you help recycle the material.
When you find a tea bag envelope without a QR code, you know it is an old envelope and belongs in the residual waste.
