What are pyramid tea bags?

Pyramid tea bags are an innovative type of tea bag designed with a three-dimensional pyramid shape. This unique design allows for more space within the tea bag, allowing the tea leaves to expand and release their full flavour during brewing. Pyramid tea bags are typically made from a biodegradable, transparent, lightweight mesh material derived from plants (sugar cane, corn or abaca) and sealed using ultrasound.

Why choose pyramid tea bags over traditional tea bags?

There are several advantages to using pyramid tea bags in your food service business:

  • Better infusion: The pyramid shape allows for better water circulation and greater contact between the tea leaves and water, resulting in a more flavourful and aromatic cup of tea.
  • Higher-quality tea: Pyramid tea bags often contain larger, whole tea leaves, which are less likely to become crushed or broken than traditional tea bags and give a superior taste and aroma.
  • Enhanced presentation: The transparent mesh material and distinct shape of pyramid tea bags offer a visually appealing presentation that can impress your customers.
  • Easier handling: The larger size and sturdier material of pyramid tea bags make them easier to handle and remove from hot water without tearing or breaking.

Are pyramid tea bags eco-friendly?

Many pyramid tea bags are made from eco-friendly materials, such as PLA or other biodegradable materials. However, checking with your supplier to ensure their pyramid tea bags are environmentally friendly and comply with relevant regulations is essential. Some pyramid tea bags may also come in recyclable or compostable packaging, reducing their environmental impact.

What types of tea are available in pyramid tea bags?

Pyramid tea bags are available in a wide variety of tea types, including:

Many suppliers also offer speciality blends and unique flavours, allowing you to provide a diverse tea selection for your customers.

Are there any health benefits associated with pyramid tea bags?

The health benefits of pyramid tea bags are primarily derived from the tea itself rather than the tea bag design. However, the improved infusion and use of whole tea leaves in pyramid tea bags can result in a more potent cup of tea, potentially offering greater health benefits. Some potential health benefits of tea include:

  • Antioxidant properties
  • Improved digestion
  • Enhanced immune system function
  • Reduced risk of heart disease and stroke

Always consult a healthcare professional before making dietary changes or consuming tea for specific health benefits.

What is the shelf life of pyramid tea bags?

The shelf life of pyramid tea bags depends on the type of tea and the storage conditions. Generally, unopened pyramid tea bags can last up to 2 years when stored properly; some that have been nitrogen-flushed offer 4 years. However, it's essential to check the expiration date on the packaging and follow the manufacturer's recommendations for optimal freshness and flavour.

How to store pyramid tea bags properly?

To ensure the freshness and quality of your pyramid tea bags, follow these storage tips:

  • Store tea bags in a cool, dry, and dark place, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.
  • Keep tea bags in an airtight container or their original packaging to prevent exposure to air and moisture.
  • Avoid storing tea bags near strong-smelling foods or cleaning products, as tea can absorb odours.

How to choose a supplier for pyramid tea bags?

When selecting a supplier for pyramid tea bags, consider the following factors:

  • Product quality: Look for suppliers that offer high-quality tea leaves and eco-friendly materials in their pyramid tea bags.
  • Variety: Choose a supplier with diverse tea types and flavours to cater to your customer's preferences.
  • Pricing: Compare prices from different suppliers to find the best value for your budget. Watch out for the net weight of tea in the tea bags - some suppliers may look better value, but they have less tea in their tea bags.
  • Reputation: Research customer reviews and testimonials to ensure the supplier has a reputation for reliability, quality, and excellent customer service.
