Eco-friendly Drops Will Make Hot Tea Instantly

How the convenient tea "bombs" are helping the environment

July 30, 2019

More than half of Americans are drinking a cup of tea on a daily basis. According to TeaUSA, the versatile drink is the most widely consumed beverage, and it can be found in almost 80% of US households.

The simply complex drink has loads of health benefits, and it works for almost any occasion. While tea is great all around, there are some unexpected environmental consequences. Loose leaf tea has steadily declined in popularity, so most consumers are using tea packaged in individual bags.

Tea Drops offers a wide variety of tea “bombs” that dissolve straight into hot water. Flavors include Matcha Green Tea, Turmeric, Citrus Ginger, and the classic Rose Earl Grey. The drops are sold in compostable packaging and typically come in sets of 10.

If you’re not ready to dive into a full package, they also offer single-serve options to give them a try. On the opposite end of the spectrum, they offer large packages that are curated in sets such as the Latte Tea Kit.
