The Evolution of The Tea Bag

The Evolution of The Tea Bag
(from a press release)

In 1908, Thomas Sullivan, a New York tea importer, accidently invented tea bags as a solution for storing and importing tea cheaply. The convenience of the tea bag, both then and now, was so brilliant, that since its inception, the majority of tea is consumed using, you guessed it, the tea bag. Since then, tea bags have been used exclusively for storing tea. A Charlotte-based company called Honitea looks to change that. Typically, two dry ingredients go into a tea drinker’s hot cup, tea and sugar. Every second, 4,500 cups of tea are consumed with sugar worldwide.

Honitea’s solution, add both dry ingredients to the tea bag. What is more convenient then dipping your tea bag into hot water and Wala! Your tea is ready to be consumed. Honitea offers tea drinker’s two sweeteners real honey and real sugar with a variety of teas that include, Earl Grey, Darjeeling Tea, Breakfast Tea, Jasmine Tea, Herbal Teas, and Chamomile Tea.
