Tea Bag Origin II

Here we look at another Tea Bag Origin. This tea bag origin comes from a thorough cook book. The Century Cook Book by Mary Ronald was published in 1895, almost 10 years before Thomas Sullivan accidentally created silk tea bags for tea distribution purposes. The text in the beverage section of this book explains a way of using a bag to assist in making a large amount of tea, could Mary Ronald be the first to publicly announce the concept of a tea bag? On page 550 of The Century Cook Book in the Beverages section it reads as follows.
The tea-bag.
Where a quantity of tea is to be used, as at receptions, it is well to put the tea into a swiss muslin bag, using enough to make a very strong infusion. Place the bag in the scalded pot; add the boiling water; after five minutes remove the bag.

Tea bags are still in use today. It was not until recently tea bags found their favorite companion, t-sleeve®. Read about the amazing tea bag friend, t-sleeve® below.
This handy design starts as a carrying pouch for your favorite tea bag and package sweeteners. Take it with you on the go to work, a restaurant or meeting a friend for a cup of tea. T-Sleeve® then becomes a tea bag squeezer when you steep your tea. After you have steeped the tea, simply pull the tea bag up into the t-sleeve®, fold and squeeze the residual liquid out, and then discard. There’s no mess, no wet fingers and no drippy tea bag. T-Sleeve® is made of recyclable and compostable materials, so simply dispose of the t-sleeve® and tea bag into the garbage or compost container. T-Sleeve® will compost, so you can feel good about making a difference in the environment.
