By utilizing the latest in environmentally friendly packaging methods, Ocean of Tea is changing the tea business for the better. They believe that tea, and environmentally friendly packaging and delivery go hand in hand, truly changing the meaning of "green tea". Aside from providing and working to develop "green" tea packaging materials, they offer several teas (and plan to add more) that donate a percentage of each order to purchase carbon credits to offset the emissions produced by delivery. In addition to both of those industry changing initiatives, they will soon allow our customers to purchase tins from them, which come with a return mailer to mail back and get a discounted refill.
