Tea Pouches (Foil Bag)

All our teas are packed in sealed, standup tea pouches that are designed to protect your tea leaves from light and moisture. A zip lock keeps your tea fresh even after opening. AuthTea tea pouches are environmental friendly and fully recyclable; their lightweight design keeps shipping costs low and helps reduce the carbon footprint.

Wholesale tea orders (200 grams or more) are packed in larger sealed wholesale aluminum bags, possibly without zip locks.

Products Availability

All products online are in stock unless there's an out of stock notice.

If you can't find a past product in our online store, most likely it's because the product has run out of stock and is not coming back anytime soon. For products that we expect to receive a new batch within weeks time, we usually keep the product visible in our store. However, if it's permanently not coming back or not expected within a reasonable amount of time, they won't be visible.
