Tea Bags

Everybody knows that the British are the greatest fans of tea in the world each year they drink sixty billion cups of this hot beverage well to some degree the British are also responsible for the commercial distribution of tea around the world they built tea factories in the 19th century and introduced machines to the workshops however the market was truly revolutionized by another invention which was accidentally made by American entrepreneur Thomas Sullivan, in 1904 we are talking about the ordinary teabags which greatly simplify the brewing so who invented them?

In fact, originally teabags were conceived as a way to sort the tea leaves Sullivan sent samples of different types of tea to his customers putting just enough leaves in each tea bag to make one cup of tea these samples he believed could help make a purchasing decision easier the clients would not have to buy tea in huge quantities but at the same time they could enjoy the taste of each type however not all of Sullivan’s clients interpreted his idea correctly many of them started brewing tea using these tea bags and that turned out to be a good idea the taste of the beverage was no different from the usual one and the product packaging promised to revolutionize the industry. And by 1929 the first tea bags made on factories started to conquer the market today 96% of the tea consumed in the UK is bagged.
