We all have been using tea bags at some point. Some find it easy to store other find it easy to brew because it’s already dosed. Most of them tea bags are made of paper fiber but there are also tea bags made of polylactide (bioplastic).
But did you know that tea bags were originaly designed to store, ship and sell tea around the world? The loose tea was actualy intended to be removed from the bags by customers, but they found it easier to prepare tea with the tea enclosed in the bags.
Tea bags were introduced in 1908 by Thomas Sullivan of New York.
