Because of her addiction to tea, Tessa founded 9teas. Tessa believes that loose leaf tea does not only taste best, it is also better for our planet. She has always been bothered by the amount of waste produced for a cup of tea. Much of that waste and plastic ends up in the natural environment! She started 9teas thinking: 'things can and must be improved'.
9teas only sells loose leaf tea and you can taste the difference. Fortunately, loose leaf tea is becoming increasingly popular, however many people still opt for the convenience of a prepackaged (plastic) tea bag and that's a shame. Because in addition to the fact that a tea bag contributes to the waste problem and often consists of billions of microplastics, a lot of flavour is lost when tea leaves are grounded into the fine powder that is in a tea bag. Did you know that some tea bags not only contain plastic but are also bleached? 9teas changes this: more tea, less waste!
