Where to Buy: Octavia Tea
Now you can enjoy the quality of loose-leaf tea with the convenience of a tea bag! Tea Pockets make brewing loose tea easier than ever.
Unlike other fill-your-own tea bags, Tea Pockets are self-sealing and come with a string attached for easy removal after steeping. Tea Pocket’s ultra-thin, almost transparent material allows water to completely circulate through the leaves, which yields a better tasting cup of tea. Tea pockets are disposable, bleach-free, adhesive-free and have no paper taste. Great for tea on the go.
50 fill-your-own tea bags per box.
As many of you probably know, I have been a tea artist (err… that is, I flavor and blend unique tea blends) for many years now. And during those many years, I have utilized T-Sacs quite often – when sampling out my own blends. Heck, I even sold them!
But, today, I have discovered a better product. Tea Pockets! What makes these so much better, you ask? Well, these have a nifty fold-over flap (kind of like the old-school sandwich bags that mom used to pack in my lunches) to keep the tea leaves safely ensconced within the roomy pouch. These also have a string loop to easily (and painlessly) remove the “tea bag” from the hot liquid.
And like T-Sacs, these are also bleach-free (and tasteless) so there are no chemicals to alter the taste of your tea.
This is THE WAY to make your own tea bags – which will be better than any commerically manufactured tea bag! – because you use your favorite high quality loose leaf tea!
Check out this How-To-Use video from the manufacturers of Tea Pockets:
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
