Lipton Pearl Teabag Not Biodegradable!

I recently tried Lipton Pearl long-leaf tea. It's good. But it comes in those pyramid-shaped teabags, and it turns out they're made of NYLON! You can't put that in your compost bin because it does not break down.

What a disappointment. Of course, I can't recommend this tea, and can't buy it again.

What is the matter with these companies?

At RateTea.net they get it, too, Review of Black Pearl Tea,

Surprisingly different from Lipton teabags, and surprisingly high quality. Rich, malty aroma, some bitterness in the aftertaste but smoother up front. A remarkably pleasing, full-bodied tea. I recommend brewing for about 3 minutes...more and it becomes too tannic.

My main complaint about this one, like all of Lipton's pyramid teas, is the nylon teabags that are not biodegradable. Why can't they get this right?
