Pyramid tea bags/sachets
I think the “teaware” section is a good place to put this…… I have been searching to buy bulk EMPTY pyramid style sachets/bags. I like using them to fill my tea in. I can’t seem to find pyramid sachets empty, for sale in bulk anywhere. UGH! Help?!
You should ask EpiTea, he would definitely know.
I mean you can buy things like T-sacs which are sort of like bags you fill yourself, but I don’t know if that’s what you’re looking for exactly.
I feel like you would need some special way to seal them… I agree with Michelle ’s suggestion of T-Sacs!
I buy tea filters from David’s tea. They are compostible and they have a drawstring to close them. They also sell T-sacs. You get 100 teasacs in whatever form you choose :D They are empty so fill them with your favourite tea :D
Thank you Tea and Trees for the mention!
Our sachets come from a manufacturer who requires that you buy very large quantities of sachets, far too many for pernal use.
In the past some of my friends have used these: http://www.artoftea.com/catalog/japanese-filter-bags-p-291.html?osCsid=c61348c67ca3c0ad33fa50bdbb676812
While i havent used them myself, my friends love them :) easy to use and store.
Hope this helps, best of luck!
I, too, have looked for the pyramid sachets and also cannot find them. I realize they might be hard to close, but I’d figure something out. I really like them.
Whoa- just that quickly, I take it back. I found them here:https://www.itoen.com/empty-nylon-mesh-tea-bags-set-of-10-tea-sold-separately.html
However, there is no image so…purchase at your own risk? I might try it.
I knew I had seen something about non-paper tea sacs (I can’t stand paper in my tea… I taste it!), and I found an old thread where someone said they found very fine polyester tea bags from japan on ebay. But a quick search didn’t yield anything immediately. If you do end up buying the itoen bags, please let me know how it goes!
thanks guys for all your help and suggestions….
Not sure if this helps, but I like to use this extra-large infuser-
It is marketed for large volumes of tea infusing, but I find it to only be big enough for personal use (10oz mugs & such) with loose-leaf teas. Of course, as with all mesh balls, it does allow the finest-size particles through into your mug.
I had also considered ordering the even larger mesh balls/strainers. They are often labeled for use with spices.
