Another new project... turns out that Teadrop discontinued the biodegradable and fillable paper tea bags that I've been using with looseleaf at work (saves time having to clean out an infuser, and less dripping everywhere).

I've tried drawstring cloth teabags before but the problem is that the tea leaves I use are CTC processed, so have quite small bits that escape through the top of the drawstring.

Anyone else have thoughts on a closure method I could use for some homemade cloth teabags?


Zips etc are no good - they'll rust pretty quickly.

Maybe some kind of double drawstring with a foldover so I can twist the top and tie it off...?

With the Teadrop bags, I use the string to hold the top of the bag out of the cup so there's no way for the leaves to escape.
