The Pros & Cons of Pyramid Tea Bags
Updated: Nov 26, 2021
At Steep Oak Tea Company, we have exclusively chosen to utilize pyramid tea bags instead of conventional tea bag packets or other shapes.
Tea drinkers who like to take their tea with milk and sugar should consider switching to pyramid tea bags. These bags allow you to enjoy the benefits of loose leaf tea but also make it easier to prepare your favorite drink without having to worry about getting any leaves in it.
So what are pyramid tea bags?
Most commonly, pyramid Tea Bags are a type of tea bag that is created by folding a piece of paper into a triangle and then sealing the point with a small bit of glue or a staple. Pyramid tea bags are pyramid-shaped, with a string attached to make it easy for you to remove them from the mug or cup. This design is great for enjoying your tea on the go, but they also work well in mugs that are too small to use regular tea bags.
Pyramid Tea Bags have been around since the 1950s, but they became popular again in the 1990s as an alternative to traditional tea bags for those who wanted to use sugar or milk in their drink. The shape of the bag allows more room for these ingredients, as well as for brewing water, which can be squeezed out.
This new shape is perfect for loose-leaf teas, which come in all shapes and sizes. They're also ideal for brewing cups of iced tea on a hot summer day.
What are the benefits of using a pyramid tea bag?
The uniqueness of pyramid tea bags go further than just being visually pyramid shaped.
In fact, pyramid tea bags are arguably the most efficient way to drink tea. That’s because the tea in your bag has more room to allow water through when steeping, as opposed to the cramped, tightly packed tea found with contention tea bag shapes. The extra space allows your tea to move a bit more freely in it’s bag and gives your tea a much richer taste.
Is it worth switching to pyramid tea bags?
We recommend switching to pyramid tea bags because they can fit in any mug. They also take less time to brew due to their concentrated form which means you will use less water and making your finished drink taste much better.
