Japan to Sell Tea Leaf Envelopes From Old Tea Leaves by Ito En

Tokyo-based historical soft drink manufacturer Ito En’s latest product is not some healthy green tea, but used tea leaf envelopes tailored to businesses.

Available in two sizes, these greenish envelopes are developed in conjunction with technology company Lintec and Osaka-based Imura Envelope. Companies who want to promote a low-carbon lifestyle will be able to purchase the tea leaf envelopes soon.

Prior to the tea leaf envelopes, Ito En had developed a string of various products made from used tea leaves such as facial blotting paper, construction materials and resin products.
