In a groundbreaking study conducted by researchers at McGill University, a startling revelation emerged: the act of brewing tea using a single plastic teabag results in the release of an astonishing quantity of microplastics and nanoplastics into your cup.

The study involved the purchase of four distinct types of plastic teabags, which were then emptied and heated in water to simulate the brewing process. The findings were nothing short of alarming, with the concentration of microplastics detected far exceeding initial estimations and surpassing levels observed in various other food items.

What's particularly concerning about these microplastics is their origin—they stem directly from the teabags themselves, rather than from the tea leaves. This poses several potential risks to human health, as these tiny plastic particles have been found in fecal matter, indicating ingestion.

Furthermore, there's growing concern that microplastics may induce inflammation within the body and accumulate in organs, potentially disrupting immune function and cellular processes.

Given these sobering revelations, it's imperative for consumers to carefully scrutinise tea labels to avoid inadvertently consuming plastic. This underscores the importance of opting for tea products that prioritise sustainability and environmental responsibility.
