Tea absorbs CO₂
Our tea plants do not produce any during their growth
CO₂, but absorb it in order to be able to grow. (Did you know that tea plants are much more "eco-friendly" than coffee plants?). Since the
Most tea ingredients are still carefully and lovingly harvested by hand in many countries around the world, hardly any CO₂ is caused. Even shipping our ingredients does not affect the tea carbon footprint. Our tea comes to you with a CO₂ minus balance. Yippi.
The real CO₂ problem with tea lies in the preparation, i.e. the heating of the water. Here the balance of our hot drinks is worse than that of cold drinks.
Tip: Only heat up as much water as you need.
