Facts about Tea Bags
- The history of Tea begins some 5,000 years ago - at least. The origins of Tea Bags, specifically, however, only took place in 1908.
- It was a New York-based Tea merchant named Thomas Sullivan who first came up with the idea - reportedly by pure accident.
- The story goes that Mr. Sullivan packed his Tea into small silken bags for convenience. His customers, though, believed it to be part of the product and brewed it up!
- Tea Bags have since taken the world by storm due to their ease in making. Pyramid Tea Bags, in particular, have soared in popularity in recent years.
A Brief History of Chai Tea
Arguably, the first Chai Loose Tea came about thousands of years ago - before they included Tea leaves. This was an Ayurvedic infusion known as a “Kadha.” The belief was that herbs and spices combined could balance one’s “doshas,” which, according to Ayurveda, are types of energy in the body that make up every individual. The practice remains popular to this day.
Blending Tea leaves to these beverages only occurred following the discovery of Assam Tea in 1823. Controversially, colonialism had a significant part to play.
During the First World War (1914-1918), when the British Empire needed a boost to its economy, the Raj began forcing “Tea breaks” upon the Indian population. This saw factory workers and those in similar industries buying and drinking more Tea.
Locals selling Tea, as a result, started to become increasingly competitive. Some added ingredients associated with Kadhas into Tea blends - resulting in Chai.
Today, India has broken free from its colonial past and enjoys this beverage without any pressure. Love for Chai has also spread across the world, which is why we proudly stock Chai Tea Bags (Pyramid).
