How to drink tea without tea bags?
Tea-Drinking Straw makes it easy to enjoy your favorite loose-tea without the fuss of a tea bag.
Most of the Tea companies have taken the feedback positively and are working towards making their tea bags completely plastic free as previous version used about 2% polypropylene. According to researchers at McGill University, billions of microplastic and nanoplastic particles were found in tea brewed from tea bags containing plastic linings. While the possible health effects of ingesting these particles are currently unknown, the new research published in the American Chemical Society journal Environmental Science & Technology suggests further investigation is needed.
According to researchers at University Medical Centre (UMC) Utrecht, microplastics may cause damage to human immune cells. The study, led by Nienke Vrisekoop, Assistant Professor at the UMC Utrecht Centre for Quantitative Immunology, found that immune cells that encountered microplastics died around three times more quickly than those that didn’t.
One can avoid microplastics from tea by researching and looking for Tea brands that do not use any plastic/nylon products in their tea-bags or switching to loose tea. The Tea-straw with a sieve in-built in the straw stops tea leaves from entering the straw, so that you can enjoy your favorite drink without worry.
