Does the Shape of a Tea Bag Matter?

Does the Shape of a Tea Bag Matter?

For many tea bag consumers, the shape of the tea bag is a personal preference. Small tea bags have packed leaves inside that can be packed together tightly and affect the steeping of your tea. You should look for a tea bag that’s large enough for the water to properly infuse the tea leaves and flavoring like stevia that ultimately provides you with the best flavor and brewing experience.. 

Which Tea Bag Shape is Best?

Tea bag shapes are a personal preference. Pyramid tea bags are a great option for those looking for a tea bag that infuses tea flavor quickly and provides robust taste. Why? A pyramid-shaped tea bag has more room for the premium tea to expand during the steeping process, providing for a great cup of tea (or infusion). 

A study performed by Fine Dining Lovers in 2014 showed that pyramid tea bags had “significantly greater brewing efficiency” than round and square tea bags. A New York Times article also states that “better teas are put in pyramid-shape bags.” 

What Is A Pyramid Tea Bag?

Pyramid bags are larger than regular square tea bags and typically offer a finer mesh to allow more water in and out. This also allows the tea to expand in the pyramid shape while steeping. 

What is a Tea Sachet?

A tea sachet is another name for a pyramid tea bag. Tea sachet bags have a filter bag that is more opaque, so you can see the premium blend of tea inside and watch the color of the tea form during the steeping process.

Are Pyramid Tea Bags Better?

Pyramid tea bags are not better than other types of tea bags but they provide a different brewing experience. They are known for providing quality tea in a very versatile bag that creates a wonderful steeping experience because the bags are more porous. This results in a quicker brewing time and a delicious cup of tea. 

Who Introduced the Pyramid Tea Bag?

The pyramid tea bag was introduced in 1996 after a company experimented with different tea bag shapes that included cylinders, spheres, triangle shaped tea bags, pentagons and top hat-type tea bags. 

The experiment concluded that the tea leaves in triangle tea bags had approximately 50 percent more room to move around and infuse, almost acting as a miniature teapot that also enhanced the flavor of the tea.

    What Are Pyramid Tea Infusers?

    Pyramid tea bags allow the tea to move more freely, with the tea leaves moving in a circular motion, almost mimicking what happens to tea in a teapot or infuser. The shape of the pyramid also allows the bag contents to release its maximum flavor potential.

    I LOVE RED ROSE ORIGINAL BLACK TEA!!!
    It is my favorite since the early 1990’s and nothing is as good. My grandson commented recently “Wow Nana this tea is really good and poured himself another glass.” Don’t mess with perfection!

    I’ve used pyramid bags before, and liked them. The new varieties sound wonderful – eager to try them! We’re big fans of EarlGrey tea, so that tops our list.

    I love your herbal teas (chocolate mint, sugar cookie, blueberry muffin, caramel apple pie) and would love to see them in the pyramid mesh bags.

    This was very interesting, Why don’t they make pyramid metal tea infusers for loose tea? I do like some of the herbal teas that are sold in various tea stores and craft shows. It would be nice to use some of these pyramid tea bags for those teas.
