If you like to take your tea with you and don't want to use plastic, there is no way around our beeskin tea bottle. The beeskin tea bottles are made of high-quality borosilicate glass. This is a type of glass that is used in research and laboratories and is considered extremely robust and heat resistant.
Inside the bottle is a very fine stainless-steel strainer with a small handle. The strainer has a lid that is closed by a screw cap. This way, loose tea really stays in the strainer and will not float in your drink. You fill the strainer with your favourite tea and insert it into the bottle with a click. The bottle is double-walled and has a vacuum seal, thus the tea will stay warm and you won't burn your fingers, because the surface of the bottle won't get hot.
Our tea bottle is closed with a lid made of sustainable bamboo. The bottles are BPA and lead-free and very easy to clean thanks to a large opening.
Homemade (iced) tea is a great alternative to store-bought teas, which often contain a lot of sugar. For example, you can make great ginger water or fresh peppermint tea in your beeskin tea bottle. Fill the strainer with fresh leaves of mint or other herbs, add extra ice cubes and enjoy a refreshing iced tea.

How long will the beeskins last?
We give you 1-Year guarantee on all of your beeskin beeswax wraps. get in touch with us if you have any problems: yes, I need help please.
Are there foods I can't use beeskin for?
For hygienic reasons you should not store raw fish and raw meat in beeskin. Place those into an extra bowl and cover the bowl instead. Pineapple has an enzyme which causes the coating to dissolve. Prolonged contact with very oily food may damage the wax and resin coating.
How do I clean beeskin?
Run your beeskin beeswax wrap under cold water only, and run your fingers over your wrap to remove any excess, as if rinsing a plate. Don’t wash or rub your wrap vigorously with a rough sponge or brush. You may use the soft side of a sponge, gently, and we recommend you use an eco-friendly dish soap with no “alcohol“ within the first 4 ingredients. Alcohol will dissolve the beeswax and tree resin. After having cleaned your beeskin, pat it dry with a kitchen towel or let it air-dry. Don’t set your beeskin beeswax on a radiator since your wrap is not particularly fond of heat.
Can I use beeskin to freeze food?
Your beeskin beeswax can definitely be put in the fridge and of course in the freezer compartment. Your food will be protected but can still breathe. We recommend you check on your food after 4 weeks to make sure it does not dry out. We like to freeze leftover pizza or half a cake in beeskin. Even bread slices are great to be frozen. Take them out and pace them directly into the toaster or oven.
What happens after its lifetime?
After its lifetime beeskin can be discarded on the compost. It will dissolve completely. Alternatively you can use beeskin as a natural and healthy fire starter for fireplace or barbecue.
