What Makes NeoSoilon® Teabags Special?

NeoSoilon® is a revolutionary woven mesh filter crafted from PLA (poly lactic acid) resin. This resin is derived from sugarcane, a natural and renewable resource. Unlike traditional teabags often made from synthetic materials, NeoSoilon® is completely biodegradable. Microorganisms in soil break it down into harmless components, leaving minimal environmental impact.

How Is NeoSoilon® Made?

The PLA resin in NeoSoilon® is created through a fermentation process using sugarcane and enzymes. This natural process results in an aliphatic polyester resin that can be melted and spun into fibres. These fibres are then woven into a fine mesh, perfect for brewing whole tea leaves without impacting the final taste. 

The sugar used to create the PLA resin is sourced directly from Thailand, where sugarcane crops are always GMO-free. NeoSoilon® is certified by the Non-GMO Project. This makes it the perfect choice for packaging organic teas, ensuring completely certified organic tea products from farm to cup.

The Advantages of NeoSoilon® Teabags

Here's what makes NeoSoilon® teabags the ideal choice for eco-conscious tea lovers:

  • 100% Bio-Based & Biodegradable: Made entirely from PLA filaments derived from sugarcane, NeoSoilon® teabags decompose completely in soil under the right conditions. Complies with the European Standard EN 13432, the international standard ISO 17088 and also American Standard ASTM D6400.
  • Exceptional Permeability: NeoSoilon®'s superior filtering system allows tea leaves to release their full flavours and aromas.
  • Non-Toxic & Safe: Free from harmful substances like endocrine disruptors, NeoSoilon® ensures a safe and healthy tea experience.
  • Sustainable Choice: When disposed of properly, NeoSoilon® teabags won't generate harmful gases like dioxin. They simply break down into CO2 and water.

How NeoSoilon® Teabags Are Composted

NeoSoilon® teabags are designed to be eco-friendly, breaking down over time and minimising their environmental impact. Here's how NeoSoilon® biodegrades:

In industrial composting facilities with controlled temperatures (around 58°C or 140°F), NeoSoilon® can fully break down within 180 days.

In soil or water, NeoSoilon® will eventually break down completely, typically within 3 ± 0.5 years. Factors like temperature, moisture, and the presence of alkaline materials can influence the breakdown rate. 

Experience the Difference with NeoSoilon® Teabags

At Tavalon, we believe in exceptional tea experiences that are kind to the environment. When you choose our NeoSoilon® teabags, you can savour the full flavour of our premium blends while brewing with a clean conscience.
