Any response to @spd.x.2?
Do Clipper tea bags contain plastic? Certain types of tea bags do contain a proportion of polymer fibres. Standard square or round tea bags which are the most common in the UK market and have been used for decades all contain a type of polymer fibre as they are made using heat-sealable filter paper. The tea bag filter paper requires a means of sealing the two layers of paper together as paper will not stick to paper and glue is not used. Square heat-seal tea bags: The filter paper Clipper uses for our square tea bags contains polypropylene to provide the heat- seal function.

Hmmm Clipper use unbleached bags made from made from paper, which is a blend of wood and vegetable fibres https://www.clipper-teas.com/our-story/unbleached-bags/
Organic tea, then they put it in plastic teabags. Lovely way of getting microplastics into the environment.
