Is there plastic in a Novus Tea Pyramid?
Here at Novus Tea, we’re always looking for ways to make our products as sustainable as possible; we’re sure our customers would expect nothing less from a responsible manufacturer.
We are aware of some recent press reports about research that suggests premium teabags shed microplastics into consumers’ drinks. You may also have seen these articles and wondered whether they refer to Novus Tea’s pyramid teabags. The answer is no!
We can categorically state that we do not use, and never have used, nylon teabags which were the subject of the research. The use of nylon in so-called premium teabags is relatively common in the USA and Canada, where the research originated. However, that’s not the case here in the UK where manufacturers such as Novus Tea use a far more sustainable filter medium for our pyramids.
Our pyramids are, and always have been, made from a material derived from plant starch, rather than oil. These pyramids also have the added benefit that the material is biodegradable so will break down by composting. We suggest you use your food bin provided by your local council to dispose of your Novus Pyramids.
If you have any further questions please give us a call or email.
