Teapigs make 'tea temples' that are biodegradable and contain no plastic. On opening the recyclable cardboard carton, we found what we thought was a plastic bag inside – but even this, as it turns out, is biodegradable. The bag may look like plastic, but it's actually made from wood pulp, and will break down completely when composted.
Teapigs are available online or in most supermarkets, and come in lots of different varieties. Their everyday brew is a classic blend of Assam, Ceylon and Rwandan leaves. Or you could try soothing chamomile, or refreshing peppermint.
There are so many different Teapigs varieties – including some really exciting and unusual flavours, such as chilli chai, popcorn and coconut – that you may find it hard to choose.
The tea pick 'n' mix pack, available online, allows you to select 12 mini packets of tea (each pack contains two tea temples) from the range, so you can discover which is your favourite flavour.
