Pyramid Bags: The Evolution of Convenient Tea

Pyramid Bag with Rooibos Blend

We are pleased to bring you information this week on the pyramid tea bag, a product that is literally revolutionizing the way people drink specialty tea.

Pyramid tea bags, (also called “sachet,” “nylon,” “silk,” or “Fuso” bags) have been steadily growing in popularity since they were first introduced to the North American market.

The story of the conventional tea bag is nearly as old as the North American tea industry. Now this super-designed pyramid bag is bringing specialty tea into the mainstream.

A Brief History of the Tea Bag

Traditional Paper Tea Bags

Legend has it that the first tea bag was invented accidentally. A tea salesman in the early 1900s discovered that it was possible to make a cup of tea by simply dropping a silk pouch full of tea into hot water. Americans have associated their tea with tea bags ever since. In order for tea bags to steep properly, smaller grade tea cuts had to be used, and lower quality infusions resulted.

Fortunately, there has been a significant upswing in loose-leaf tea interest in recent years.Now with the advent of a different kind of tea bag consumers are beginning to experience high quality loose leaf teas like never before.

What Makes Pyramid Bags so Special?

Pyramid bags are made from nylon  strands that are woven into a small net-like mesh, creating holes in the bag much larger than conventional paper bags. These larger holes allow for water to come in contact with more of the tea’s surface area, thus releasing more essential oils and character into the cup.

The unique triangular structure of these bags allows for the tea to move around freely inside. When the tea comes into contact with hot water the leaves naturally move in circles as they heat and cool. This freedom of motion makes a pyramid bag functionally the same as a larger cup or loose leaf infuser, making the high-quality flavor of loose leaf tea conveniently available in a pouch that anyone can brew.

QTrade’s Pyramid Bag Options

Pyramid bags are especially convenient for foodservice establishments that wish to serve high quality teas as a means of distinguishing themselves from their competitors. Now with biodegradable options available, we expect pyramid bags to overtake conventional paper bags very within the next five years.
