Teapigs

This way to real tea!

teapigs uses only the very best quality whole leaf teas, whole berries, whole herbs – not the dusty stuff you’ll find in normal paper teabags. The teas come in their special biodegradable tea temples – a roomy mesh bag that gives the leaves plenty of room to infuse.

teapigs allows you to:

  • Offer top quality loose tea in self-service areas
  • Control portions, control quality
  • Save on time – no need for measuring, straining or excess teaware
