tea bags, ( okay feel free to insert dirty jokes here)

Tea bags
On this lovely rainy day, I was sitting having a lovely cup or jasmine fruit tea and wondered who was clever enough to stick tea into convenient little bags for me to make the perfect amount of deliciousness.
“The first tea bags were hand-sewn silk bags and tea bag patents date as early as 1903. First appearing commercially around 1904, tea bags were successfully marketed by the tea and coffee shop merchant Thomas Sullivan from New York, who shipped his tea bags around the world. The loose tea was intended to be removed from the bags by customers, but they found it easier to prepare tea with the tea enclosed in the bags. Modern tea bags are usually made of paper fiber. The heat-sealed paper fiber tea bag was invented by William Hermanson, one of the founders of Technical Papers Corporation of Boston.”
So free samples from a clever merchant changed the way we made tea. Awesome!
