Lined envelopes for tea?

Postby spinmail » Jul 13th, '12, 14:35

I'd like to send envelopes of tea to some people; something that would hold 10 or 15g or tea.

I know that certain vendors send samples of their tea. You aware of any empty tea envelopes that can be eventually sealed? Thanks!

That seems like a really good price. 9 cents each. I have to compare to Sorbent.

I am heading out the door, but I have used Sorbent Systems, they have a lot to choose from though finding the exact product can be difficult. If nobody posts links, I will later.

Both of these are attractive options. The bags from YS are priced competitively - though the shipping fee is a factor to consider. Sorbent systems is like a gold mine for this kind of bag, and the mylar zip bag comes in all sorts of sizes; with OTTI alone, Chip must run through boxes of this bag. :)

I since called Upton Tea, and they offer a three-layer reclosable bag for around 20 cents each. There's also a local tea shop, Aroma Tea; they sell lots of tea, and certainly have bags they might be willing to sell.

Good find. Using similar search criteria, I found this:

Free ship, but it's an auction, not a Buy It Now! Ten cents each is about as good as it gets.

Good call. I wonder if my local vendor, Aroma Teas, uses food grade enclosures. Things have suddenly become more complicated.... :?:

what about using one of that cheap 20 bucks vacuum

machinese they also use for packing small samples of food at home. you can close it completely and in the long run it might be as cheap as normal bags... i haven't seen them in a long time but we had such a little thing like 10 years ago or so.

are the ones I use.

There are usually specials where you can buy lots of 100 of one color of a particular size. I usually use AA and A for samples, and sometimes keep B / C around as well.
