Why We Started

  On Thanksgiving, we are reminded of the importance of family and health. Servings and sides are aplenty as every family member takes extras of their favorites. This year, make Teablets the last ingredient to sooth full stomachs, with anti-oxidant rich blossoming tea. This easy to make individually brewed tea will satisfy each and everyone’s taste, with flavors like cinnamon, green and black tea. But remember, only Teablets can provide such pure individual servings.

     As scientific studies on toxin-laden teabags continue to mount, tea drinkers are looking for healthy and convenient alternatives like Teablets. For tea drinkers who are new to these discoveries, paper and mesh polymer teabags have been proven to leach potentially carcinogenic chemicals into hot tea.

     Paper teabags are notorious for containing both bleach and epichlorohydrin. While many know about bleach, few understand the implications of epichlorohydrin. This chemical, also used as a pesticide, helps prevent bag tear and disintegration. The National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety considers it a potential carcinogen. No tea drinker deserves to have such chemicals leached into their tea.

     Unfortunately, the new pyramid shaped plastic teabags have put teabags in even murkier waters. Typically made from either nylon or polyethylene terephthalate (PET), these polymers’ molecules break down in boiling water. They both have glass transition temperatures (Tg) well below water’s boiling point of 212°F, which is near the optimal brewing temperature. With little known about the health effects of broken down nylon and PET molecules, tea drinkers are seemingly left with one last alternative – loose leaf tea.

     But you don’t have the time or expensive gadgets to prepare loose leaf tea. This Thanksgiving prepare your loose leaf tea in a fraction of the time with Teablets.  Drop one into a cup of hot water and the tea will brew in seconds. The Teablet, made of compressed Sri Lanka-grown tea leaves without any chemical binding agents, unleashes the purest flavor and antioxidants. If you’re still not sure which is healthier, don’t take my word for it. Check out these sources below and decide for yourself.
