Why the tag on a tea bag is needed: few people know the answer

How to brew tea correctly

The name of the drink's manufacturer is usually written on the tag of a tea bag. However, few people know that this is not just a marketing ploy by manufacturers aimed at visual advertising.

If you thought that the purpose of such a label was solely to dip the bag into the cup during the brewing process, you're right, but there is one caveat. OBOZREVATEL has analyzed why you need a tag on a tea bag.

Indeed, the label serves as a kind of "handle" - without it, it would be quite inconvenient to dip and pull the bag out of the cup.

In fact, the purpose of the tag is somewhat different, and few people are aware of it. It is used to fix the bag in the cup while pouring boiling water. Experts say that you should brew a packaged drink as follows:

Step 1. Put a cup on the table, place the tea bag inside, and press the paper tag down with the bottom of the cup.

Step 2. Secure the tea bag and then pour hot water.

Step 3. Wait until the tea is brewed and take out the bag.

The tag prevents the thread from being "washed away" inside the container, and after brewing, the bag can be quickly and easily removed.

There is an additional function of the tag - it helps to squeeze out the remaining liquid from the bag. The string is wrapped around a spoon and pressed lightly while holding the tag.

By the way, an interesting life hack is gaining popularity on the Internet - tea with strawberry tails. Yes, it may sound a bit strange, but those who have already tried the drink claim that the tip really works. The tea takes on the flavor of fresh strawberries - rich, delicate, with a pleasant sourness. Read the article to learn how to make the summer drink.
