Another Reason to Love Upton Tea

I love Upton Tea. Its extraordinary range of teas from all over the world; its lovely accessories; its detailed, informative, and beautifully designed quarterly; its helpful website -- all are admirable. Now this -- packing peanuts!
These peanuts not only protected my new cheerful Chatsford teapot, but they are also biodegradable.On the bottom of the packing slip and invoice, this statement appears: "Our packaging fill is made from FDA approved corn starch and is 100% biodegradable. The 'peanuts' may be safely washed down the sink or disposed of as compost."

I threw some in the sink, turned on the water, and away they went. They simply disappeared!

Now I have another reason to love Upton Tea.
