If your morning cup of green tea is becoming less and less worth getting out of bed for, we feel you. Big time. But more importantly, we found an easy fix. Introducing We Spill the Tea, a newly-launched organic tea brand that boasts a sustainable lineup of four unique teas.
We Spill the Tea aims to modernize the boring, antiquated image of tea by shaking up the industry with sustainable packaging, bold flavors and care for the environment. Available exclusively on Amazon, the teas—one caffeinated and three herbal—are made with organic ingredients and come in biodegradable tea sachets made from plant-based mesh. The tea boxes are made with Forest Stewardship Council-certified paper, meaning they're recyclable, sourced responsibly and printed with soy-based ink. Even the tea envelopes (which TBH look just like plastic) are plant-based and biodegradable. Best of all, the brand has a partnership with 1% for the Planet, an international org whose members contribute at least 1 percent of their total revenue to environmental causes.
The teas can be served hot (just pour boiling water over the sachet in a mug and let it steep for three to five minutes) or iced (steep the tea using one sachet for every cup of water, let it cool, refrigerate and serve over ice). Sure, compared to basic black tea (which costs like, one cent per bag), they’re a tad pricy. But it’s a price we’re willing to pay for the good of the environment (and our morning routine).
Want to try all four? Here’s what we thought of each tea.
