All New Tick Tock!
We’ve been very busy thinking how we can make our Tick Tock tea even better. In our quest to go plastic free and forever celebrating the rooibos wonder plant, we have made the switch to biodegradable teabags, redesigned our packaging and more!
New plant-based teabags
This is the bit we’re most proud of! All our teabags are now biodegradable and can be put in your local council Food Waste bin for composting. We have worked around the clock to make the change and are thrilled that we have taken this important step. In the process, we have also removed the plastic film that used to wrap the box of tea. You will notice that we now have a foil pouch inside which contains the teabags. This pouch will keep the tea extra fresh. It’s not yet biodegradable, but we are running trials with new materials at the moment... so watch this space!
Out with the old, in with the new! Our iconic packaging has been updated to have rooibos (or redbush), our favourite wonder plant, right at the heart. And can you spot our newest member of the Tick Tock family? It’s the beautiful Cape Sugar Bird, whose silvery birdsong can be heard across the rugged mountains and open skies of the Cedarberg in South Africa, the only place on earth where rooibos can grow.
You might notice too that we have a different shaped box. Yes, our 40-teabag format now comes in a rectangular box, instead of the familiar cubes. One of the main reasons for this is that we’ve done away with the old plastic wrapper which was there to keep the tea fresh. Instead, the teabags are now sealed in a foil pouch which means your tea will remain full of flavour and full of rooibos goodness.
For those rooibos superfans who can’t get enough of the smooth rich taste of rooibos and all its naturally caffeine free health benefits, our 80-teabag box is now more compact too and will take up a lot less room in your cupboard. All ready to be enjoyed at any time - morning, noon and night. And there's more to come!
If that wasn’t enough, then we’ve got some more things in the pipeline. For news on all our exciting projects, sign up to our newsletter in the footer below.
