Great article. And I appreciate that it mentions that paper teabags have an environmental impact as well. What it doesn't say is that paper tea bags also contain plastic. There are plastic fibers mixed in with the paper, which is what helps heat seal them. I'm planning a blog post about it soon. Anyway, that's why I have a reusable stainless steel tea ball and buy loose leaf bulk tea in my own container instead of packaged tea.
