With a history dating back to 1922, Alvita tea has been manufacturing pure and natural singles and blends. They are most well known for their commitment to the environment, and offer some of the most sustainable and green-friendly packaging for their tea products currently available. The box that contains the tea is composed of 100% recycled board, which can then be recycled again to keep the trend going and eliminate waste. The bags themselves that contain the tea have no excessive strings, tags, or staples, but are instead "English pillow" style, so that no space is wasted.
The paper used in the teabags that hold Alvita tea is also completely recycled, and the bags are oxygen bleached rather than bleached with chlorine, which can cause damage to the ground water and environment. This attention to detail extends beyond their packaging, and also helps describe the products, as the tea is crafted with a purity and attention to detail that is good for the earth and for customers alike. That is why more and more customers have chosen this brand of herbal tea over others, when faced with such a wide selection.
