Naturally Unbleached Teabags

Teabags from The Republic of Tea come in our signature unbleached round paper teabags with no unnecessary strings, tags, or staples – the same way we have been making great tasting tea bags for over 30 years.  The Republic of Tea does not make nylon or “silken” tea bags.

Tea Safety

The Republic of Tea sources only the highest-quality tea grown in the premier tea gardens in the world. From the Wuyi Mountains of China to the island of Sri Lanka, we treasure our long term relationships with each supplier.

All of our teas are naturally produced. All of our teas are inspected and undergo the most stringent of quality assurance processes at the garden level before they are shipped. Once they arrive at our packaging facility, they are inspected again.

We take this process very seriously to ensure that we’re providing our Citizens with the highest quality and safest teas from each unique origin.

Tea from Japan

All of the premium teas and herbs of The Republic of Tea (including teas from Japan) undergo extensive testing prior to purchase and prior to entering into the United States. Then, again after its arrival in our warehouse, the teas are tested again.

Prior to importing these teas, The Republic of Tea will continue to conduct extensive testing and quality control checks to ensure the future tea harvests are safe for our Citizens to sip.
