Thomas Sullivan is the man responsible for making tea experiences more convenient by ‘accidentally’ introducing tea bags to the world! The American tea and coffee merchant sent out samples of his product in silk pouches in 1908. His intention was to encourage sales by sending out these samples. He did not expect the consumers to put them directly in the hot water to create tea brews. People did it anyway and it left them wanting more. Owing to rising demand, tea bags were successfully marketed in the same year by Thomas Sullivan!
What Are Tea Bags Made Of?
Tea bags were originally used only for Camellia sinensis teas, they are now made with other tisanes as well. Commonly, they are made of filter paper or food-grade plastic, or occasionally of silk cotton or silk.
Tea bags by Tea Culture of the World boast a unique feature. Our premium tea bags are made of Soilon, a 100% biodegradable material. While contributing to sustainability, it also ensures that the quality of the teas isn’t compromised in any way. Soilon is a bioplastic made from a lactic acid derived from corn starch. The material can completely break down, leaving no room for plastic pollution. It decomposes within a month, after you have discarded it.
