Byron Bay Tea Company (BBTC) is leading the way in the tea industry with their pyramid teabags - a product that is literally revolutionising the way people drink specialty tea. With no compromise on quality, flavour or detriment to your health or the environment – the pyramid teabag has an innovative design that far surpasses the design of its conventional paper teabag counterpart. Why are BBTC’s pyramid teabags so special?

Better for You and the Planet!

Byron Bay Tea Company teabags are made from a biodegradable Corn Starch material called Soilon. Up until now, the majority of pyramid teabags have been made from nylon or polyamide (a plastic) which was the first purely synthetic fibre and developed in the 1930s. There are two obvious consequences of this being used in teabags. Firstly, brewing tea by adding boiling water to a teabag made from nylon could have a serious impact on our physical health. Secondly, while nylon might be a convenient material to make teabags with, cheap to manufacture and long-lasting- it has a major impact on the environment. In an effort to overcome these shortcomings, biochemical researchers and engineers have developed biodegradable plastics that are made from renewable resources, such as plants. Corn starch material is one such example and is used in BBTC’s pyramid teabags.

Better Infusion Materials Used

BBTC’s pyramid teabags are made from corn starch fibres that are woven into a small net-like mesh, creating holes in the bag much larger than conventional paper teabags. These larger holes allow for water to come in contact with more of the tea's surface area, thus releasing more essential oils and character into the cup.

Unique Triangular Structure

The pyramid style of these bags allows for the tea to move in circles as they heat and cool. This freedom of motion makes the pyramid bag functionally the same as a larger cup or a loose-leaf infuser, making the high-quality
flavour of loose leaf tea conveniently available in a pouch that anyone can brew.

No Compromise on Quality or Taste

Due to its innovative design, the pyramid teabag offers the tea-drinker the convenience of a teabag without compromising on quality or taste. High-grade, full-leaf teas can be used in these teabags as opposed to the ‘dust’ or ‘fannings’ that are used in conventional teabags. Therefore a more flavourful cup of tea can be extracted making them more beneficial to our health.
