Tea Bag Papers for First-Class Aroma

As the global market leader in tea bag papers, Glatfelter develops high-performance filter papers which are used to brew billions of cups of tea around the world every year.

Glatfelter’s teabag filter papers are designed using high-quality abaca (“Manila hemp”), cellulose fibers, and man-made fibers to achieve excellent infusion while guaranteeing high retention of fine tea particles. By using this blend of specialty fibers, Glatfelter’s tea bag papers create a web structure that enables the rapid release of tea aroma, color, and flavor while retaining particles within the bag.
