Truth is 'silk' tea pouches or tea bags have Nothing to do with Real Silk, they are made of nylon. So in fact your heating nylon and drinking tea with leached chemicals from nylon. Be really nice to have real silk pouches but seems that's not the case. So I preferr unbleached tea bags. Love tea but not the chemicals from the bags..
