Resealable bags for mailing tea?
Greetings kind Steepster folk!
I’ve been receiving lots of tealove from folks in the last month and would like to be able to pay it forward to others. I’d love to get a hold of some bulk resealable bags, preferably on the smaller size (for samples), and preferably opaque that I could write on with a marker. You get the idea :)
Anyone got any favorite sources, good leads?
I use the craft bags from the dollar store. They are resealable and they are on the thicker side, so the scents don’t contaminate other teas as much.
I get these from eBay 100 at a pop for $17.99
I get 4mil bags. The standard thing 2mil bags will leak out smells and contaminate the other teas.
something like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-3-x3-small-reclosable-ziplock-bags-4mil-HEAVYDUTY-/140725862913?hash=item20c3ea4201:g:8jUAAOxydkZRjUHV
These work for me and you can’t smell even the strongest teas through them: http://www.ebay.com/itm/50-3-5×5-Ziplock-Stand-Up-Pouches-Bags-SUP-AA-Clear-Silver-/310658911232?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4854b6cc00 They have other sizes too. These fit about 10 teaspoons.
I have gotten the craft paper ones before, but I wanted smaller sizes for samples, so I just bought these:
Bonus US shipping, so I will get them in three days rather than 3 weeks.
Thanks folks – those are some great options!
Also, if other folks find this thread – I just found this on Yunnan Sourcing:
I got some yester day from Amazon. 2 days later after I ordered.
AllanK recommended me to get them. Thank you Allan ;)
