    These tea bags are great! I use them when I'm at work and don't have a sink to rinse out a steeper. They brew the tea quite well, hold up to multiple infusions, and do not alter the taste of the tea at all. It's a good price for the quantity, too. I recommend these to anyone wanting loose-leaf teas in situations where they can't (or don't want to) use traditional steepers.

    I thought the tea bags would be a good way to use the loose tea at work since I don't have access to a sink to take care of a strainer basket. The tea bags do not have any closure or directions. I can't figure out the best way to close the bags to keep the tea in, any thoughts?

    I grow my own herbs and make all sorts of herbal tinctures, teas, balms & other concoctions and these little gems allow me to share my home brews with friends. It would be easier if I didn't have to staple close with a string and tag but I can deal with it.

          For those who can't figure out how to close them, simply fold it over a couple times and staple it. I make a bunch at one time.

          I received this as a gift and I have to say that it is one of my favorite tea product. It was a bit confusing on how to "close" the bag after you put in loose tea leaves because the box say it's self sealing but I was like "how?". I personally think it is okay if you just let the bag drop in hot water but I was a bit paranoid and folded the flap in the bag. I never had any tea come out so I believe either way would work.

              I found that it is perfect for coffee. I make a 14oz cup by using these filters.

                These bags gave me a way to enjoy my loose leaf tea one cup at a time without messing with infusers. The one downside is lack of instructions for how to close them. Hanging the flap over the side of the cup seems to be working though. I have to hold it while I pour the water, but after that it stays and steeps wonderfully.

                Love how fine the filter is for almost powdered tea. Like the end of the bag/tin. Tall so i can stick it in most cups without it falling in. Sadly it dose not have a string or clasp to keep it closed with it or in store. You have to get it online. Or use one hanging around the house. I pack it up in a travl tin with tea in it for work so I do not have to risk damaging my good filters. Love it!

                  These tea bags are great. I have used them before and am glad that Teavana offers them. I keep some at home and at work and pre-make bags for trips which I just keep in a ziplock.

                  As for all the people who have asked about closing the bags for use and portability, I know this will horrify some tea purists, but at work, I just fold the bag over and then fold again and staple it shut with the stapler on my desk. Another option is to take a chopstick, pencil, toothpick or something and poke it through the bag, at least a half inch from the top and rest the stick across your mug, with the bag creating a sort of hanging basket for your tea. Hope that helps.

                  These paper filters are very convenient to use and less messier than than other tea containers. Some commercial tea bags contain harmful epichlorohydrin but this product claims to be completely natural and bio degradeable.

                  Tea on the go

                    These are great and conveinient for making tea away from your normal infuser, and a great alternative to having to clean a tea ball on the go.

                    Be careful to keep the flap drapped over the rim of the cup to avoid any of the tea falling out into the water. Avoid using a deep cup!

                    For my favorite blend, I put twice as much tea (2 tsp) in a single bag to make one 8oz cup, and it tasted the same as a normal brew in my perfect tea maker. I figured I would use more tea to make up for any flavor lost due to the bag. Same water temperature and steeping time, and only a hint more rock sugar, and the taste was what I normally get!
