Sustainable Organic Teas Now in Recycled Newspaper Boxes at Mountain Rose Herbs

I just received a press release from my favorite Herb Supplier, Mountain Rose Herbs. I purchase lots of Organic herbs for products and for personal use from Mountain Rose. Mountain Rose has a new Tea Box for their teas made from recycled newspapers. I usually get my tea from them in bulk, by the pound (my favorite is Lapsang Souchong Tea). But I think it is pretty cool for the 4 oz sizes. Here is all the info:

It’s Sustainable:

- 100% Compostable
