Overpackaging Alert: Treleela Tea

We often rail against excessive packaging and have to wonder about this. "This boutique tea line by Ineeka ntegrates innovative design, responsible philosophies and superior flavor into one cool package. These aren’t you grandma’s tea bags– the Treleela Pochettes are made to replicate the experience of a traditional good brew. Simply tear where the arrows tell you to, attach the wings on each side of your favorite mug, and pour hot water over the opening." While the tea may be "Cultivated on Ineeka’s own family farms, these 100% organic whole leaf teas are produced by an industry pioneer of environmental and social responsibility standards.", what is with the tea bag as big as a mug? Is it re-useable? ::Josh Spear
