Why there are 3 tea bags in a pack
When it comes to reusable tea bags it is best to have 1 tea bag for each variety of Tea.
Green: Green tea has caffeine in the leaves, and the oils from these leaves will be stored in the hemp tea bag so you would not want to mix with herbals.
Herbal: These Tea's Do not have caffeine to transfer to the bag but they will leave some of the herbal flavor's from the oils trapped into the tea bag.
Black: These tea's will completely recolor the tea bag while also leaving being loads of flavor into the tea bag.
