The TeaComposition studies are crucially dependent on the use of the same tea types at all sites. This is because different tea typs and even different batches of the same tea may contain different substrate characteristics that may affect the rate of decomposition. The use of different tea types or different batches may therefore compromise the results. UNILEVER has made the tea bags available for the TeaComposition initiative. The tea will be provided after signing in for the initiative.
If for some reason you need to order the tea yourself, the order can be made at dutchsupermarket.com. Use the EAN no. when ordering:

CAVE: Please note that Lipton has changed the fabric of the bags while the tea inside has remained the same. In case you have collected data with the “new” tea bag, please indicate it.
