How do you package small portions of tea when sending a package?

My friends in Korea exchange tea a lot, and send each other small portions of loose leaf tea packaged and heat-sealed in small aluminum or OP bags (Example: http://cfs8.tistory.com/image/2/tistory/2008/08/31/21/37/48ba909a8b937).

I wanted to send some loose leaf tea to my friends, but I don’t know how you get those supplies in US. Does anybody know? Or, if not, how would you package small portions of tea when sending a package?

so far i’ve used ziplock bags, left over “travelers tea tins” from republic of tea. But i wonde,r if you do this often perhaps invest in a food sealer?

I use a sealer bought from Amazon. It’s called “impulse sealer” by some seller and “plastic sealer” by some else. It’s very similar to household food saver machine, but has 8 levels to use on bags of different thickness. It functions very well, but quite bulky.

I got mine from Uline.com. they ship quick and also have good prices.

Thank you everybody for the kind response. I’ll look into them. I usually buy more tea than I can drink and like to send it to some of my friends.
