The Tea Spot has applied for a SBIR grant of $460,000 for social entrepreneurship research on the market for a compostable tea filter for use in the mass-foodservice market.

The Tea Spot has developed a patent pending design for a bioplastic tea filter for use with loose leaf tea. The device is trademarked Brewlux, and is manufactured from corn resin in Colorado. The filter recently won an industry award at the World Tea Expo last year. Loose leaf tea is growing in popularity in the foodservice industry, as consumers become more aware of the health benefits of this kind of tea.

The demand for premium tea represents an estimated $36 million annual market for filter products like Brewlux. The Brewlux design is not only environmentally sustainable, but also provides an innovative design which results in a better infusion of the tea than is possible with paper filters and bags.
