Harvested from the eastern Indian state of Assam, these Assam loose leaves take you back to backpacking across India that one summer. Most tea bags give you broken tea leaves, but this batch of loose leaves bloom in hot water. Because you deserve only the best.

Alaya Tea sources their small-batch teas from organic and biodynamic farms in India, and their packaging is plastic-free and compostable.

Good news! This packaging is industrially compostable. Find a composter near you at www.findacomposter.com. Otherwise, the bag should be placed in the garbage bin.
These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

How it does good

Making tea kinder for the environment

There’s a big problem with our little tea bags. While tea bags can be a convenient option for tea time, most of them are made with plastic and nylon-based fibers, which in turn contributes to our world's massive waste problem. This is why Alaya is committed to the freshest loose leaf teas, ordered seasonally and in small batches. They directly source all of their teas and herbals from organic, biodynamic, and regenerative farms that have additional certifications on top of USDA organic: Demeter Certified Biodynamic for their tea estates and Regenerative Organic Certified for their herbals.
