Harrogate based company Yorkshire Tea say they're onto the second round of tests on fully biodegradable tea bags.

On the website the tea firm said currently their tea bags contain a small amount of plastic to hold the bag together to stop the tea leaves spilling out when it's brewing.

 

They say the results of a larger production trials on the new plastic-free tea bag are expected in June , and they're working to balance the benefit of a fully biodegradable tea bag with other impacts like an increased carbon footprint.
