Bleached tea bags - toxic

i read below re concern re green tea and the bag it comes in, i also use WW organic green tea and their organic rooibos for the kids, the tea bag is not bleached either which elimiates any possible harmful residue or chemicals which they mite not always be able to get out of the tea bags when they make them with the bleach, i would think its a better solution all round to avoid any chemical contamination!

Dear Miki
In general the bleach that is used in the production of this type of food product is the same component we all used to sterilise our baby's bottles before we had microwave ovens! As I mentioned before, it is always wise to stick to large reputable manufacturers when purchasing food products that one uses regularly because their quality control and hygiene is often superior to smaller manufacturers, particularly in countries like China who have not had a good track record (e.g. the melamine scandal).
